For a night, the City Hall will transform into a more relaxed lounge, welcoming to socialise and enjoy the evening surrounding the spectacular music and light experience at the Great Hall.

The program will tastefully combine a compilation of some of the most extraordinary modern classical music, including works by one of the most celebrated composers today Philip Glass, one of the most recognised young Baltic composers Gediminas Gelgotas, as well as a set by NICO artist Justas Kulikauskas a.k.a. The Amazing Cello, who just released his latest album.

All of the compelling ingredients creating this atmospheric evening with NICO will keep you mesmerised and will let you experience a classical concert in a new enjoyable way.

Patirkite unikalią naktinio Vilniaus atmosferą pačioje miesto širdyje - nauju, neformaliu rakursu birželio 10-osios naktį atsiveriančioje Rotušėje. Jos rezidentai, Naujų idėjų kamerinis orkestras NIKO ir meno vadovas Gediminas Gelgotas kviečia susitikti betarpiško koncerto formate, bei pasimėgauti išskirtiniu koncertu “lounge’inėje” aplinkoje. NIKO kaip kolektyvas vertinamas dėl savo artistinio bruožo, gebėjimo bendrauti su įvairių skonių ir amžiaus publikomis, kardinaliai transformuos šią vilniečiams puikiai pažįstamą erdvę.

Pagrindinė salė taps erdvė su scena per vidurį, aplink kurią bus galima laisvai vaikščioti, bendrauti ir nerūpestingai mėgautis išskirtine atmosfera. Koncerte derės skoninga, specialiai šiam vakarui priderinta šiuolaikinės klasikinės muzikos programa. Girdėsite tokių korifėjų kaip Phillip’o Glass’o kūrinius, kartu su pasaulyje jau pripažinto lietuvių kompozitoriaus Gedimino Gelgoto muzika, bei ką tik naujausią savo albumą pristačiusio violončelininko, NIKO nario, Justo Kulikausko (“The Amazing Cello”) kūryba.

Visi šie ingredientai susijungę į visumą, nepaliks nė vieno abejingo. Kviečiame visus patirti netikėtą muziką, netikėtu metu, netikėtoje vietoje, nes tai išties bus ypatinga.
Vilnius Town Hall, Didžioji g. 31, Vilnius MM/DD/YYYY
