      Lithuania’s signature Western classical music band, Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra (LNSO), is coming to play in Mumbai.

      The Orchestra will give two memorable concerts at the Jamshed Bhabha Theatre of the National Centre for the Performing Arts (NCPA) in Mumbai on 10 and 11 October.

      One of its concerts LNSO has dedicated to the upcoming Centenary of the Republic of Lithuania, which will be celebrated in February next year. For this reason, Lithuania’s Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius will arrive in Mumbai in the morning of 10 October.

      High-level dignitaries from the Government of India will join the minister for the performance.

      ‘For the first time the Embassy is handling an event of such scale, wherein a team of almost 100 artists is coming to play the best pieces of Western and Lithuanian classical music, all together. No doubt it will be a remarkable show and we invite all our friends and partners to come and see it,’ says Lithuanian ambassador Laimonas Talat-Kelpša.

      The Orchestra’s repertoire in Mumbai includes the pieces by Brahms, Berlioz, Liszt, Grieg and Prokofiev. The magic symphony “In the Forest” by Lithuania’s early 20th century composer Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis will also be played at NCPA.

      During its history of almost eighty years, LNSO has performed on the most prestigious stages in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Madrid, Berlin, Bern, Antwerp, Stockholm, London and Tokyo. In 2013, the Orchestra completed its maiden tour to Latin America.

      The Orchestra’s young and charismatic conductor Modestas Pitrėnas is well acclaimed at home and abroad. He has taken the duties of LNSO’s chief conductor and artistic director since 2015. In addition, he performs as the principal guest conductor at the Latvian National Opera.

      LNSO’s visit to India will be part of its larger Asian tour. After two nights in Mumbai, the Orchestra will proceed to Bangkok where another set of concerts will take place.

      The tickets to LNSO’s Mumbai performances are already on sale and can be purchased from the BookMyShow.com website here.
