Bel Canto’s Christmas program and the Lithuanian premiere of Ola Gjeilo’s latest work Dreamweaver!
Bel Canto Choir Vilnius, Lithuania’s best choir, invited listeners to celebrate 2017 Holiday season at a pair of intimate and elegant concerts at the St Catherine’s Church in Vilnius. On two consecutive nights – December 15 & 16, 2017 – Bel Canto performed the Lithuanian premiere of Dreamweaver, composed by Ola Gjeilo, one of the world’s most popular contemporary composers.
Bel Canto also presented music by other prominent contemporary composers, such as Eric Whitacre, Morten Lauridsen, Eriks Ešenvalds, as well as choral arrangements of popular songs.
The Dreamweaver Concerts featured Bel Canto’s friends, Lithuania’s great young talents: soloists Lina Dambrauskaitė and Sandra Lebrikaitė, fourteen musicians of string ensemble Mikroorkéstra and saxophonist Tomas Želvys. Bel Canto’s choirmaster Raminta Gocentienė joined them on piano.
