The choir “Jauna muzika” and the string quartet “Mettis” invite fans of choral music to immerse themselves in an oasis of peace, the magic of the sounds of music, where warmth and light will touch and fade. It is symbolic that “From Darkness to Light” will sound just before All Saints’ Day. The concert will take place in St. Catherine’s Church on October 30, 7PM. The choir will be accompanied by excellent Lithuanian performers – string quartet “Mettis” (Kostas Tumosa (violin), Bernardas Petrauskas (violin), Karolis Rudokas (viola), Rokas Vaitkevičius (cello).
