The Christopher Summer Festival is the largest and one of the most impressive summer music festivals in Lithuania, and runs for two months. During this time, over 50 original concert events are presented to the public, taking place in different spaces in Vilnius and other Lithuanian districts.
This festival does not easily fit into any stylistic frame – its motto being „all genres are good, except the boring ones”. So, alongside classical music masterpieces there is jazz, world music, experimental projects, and traditional organ, guitar and piano music cycles.
