several years now, women's choirs from the University of Liepāja, the
University of Klaipeda and the University of Vilnius have joined
together with the chamber orchestra of the University of Vilnius to
offer a cultural exchange programme for students so that they can learn
about and perform compositions by distinguished composers from the past
and the present day, performing those in Latvia and Lithuania, and thus
facilitating close links of friendship between the two Baltic peoples.
The merged women's choir will perform spiritual music composed by Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish and Basque composers. The
chamber orchestra of the University of Vilnius, in turn, will perform
opuses from the Romanticism-era British composers Charles Hubert
Hastings Parry (Lady Radnor's Suite) and Peter Warlock (Capriol Suite). The final piece in the concert will be performed by the choirs and the orchestra - Stanisław Moniuszko's Mass in E minor.
