As a private cultural organisation, Vaidilos Klasika stands out due to its focus on classical music and commitment to helping the young generation of Lithuanian musicians grow. Vaidilos Klasika has embarked on a mission of bringing classical music and its outstanding performers closer to the audience. To achieve this, the organisation has employed a variety of unconventional solutions, including innovative media communication and educational projects.
Classical music at the Vaidila Theatre
Vaidila Theatre, a thoroughly refurbished venue in the heart of Vilnius, has been hosting classical music concerts since the autumn of 2016. From September through May, the 19th-century hall welcomes musicians from Lithuania and beyond to what is widely considered one of the best acoustic settings for chamber music in Lithuania.
The highlights of the 2016–2017 season included performances of a world-renowned violinist, Gidon Kremer, internationally acclaimed Lithuanian pianists, Petras Geniušas, Lukas Geniušas, and Andrius Žlabys, the country's best choirs, such as Ąžuoliukas, Jauna Muzika, Brevis, and Bel Canto, and some of the elite opera singers, including Merūnas Vitulskis, Rafailas Karpis, Ieva Prudnikovaitė, and Ona Kolobovaitė.
Education and young talents
To promote and support young musicians, Vaidilos Klasika has launched a special programme, The Young Talents of the Vaidilos Klasika. The 2016–2017 season saw a dozen of them perform at the Vaidila Theatre. Following a 2017 agreement with Baltic Optical Disc, their concerts are to be recorded and released. To promote awareness of classical music, Vaidilos Klasika organises a competition for young music critics once a year.
