The cultural summer calendar in Klaipėda abounds in jazz music events. The Park Stage of the Klaipėda Concert Hall is one of such places where the liberal spirit of jazz music dwells on summer nights. It has already become a tradition to listen to “Jazz Under the Linden Trees” in mid-July. This year’s Summer Concert Series offers more than one programme devoted to jazz music. The first will be presented by the Klaipėda Choir “Aukuras,” conducted by its leader Alfonsas Vildžiūnas, and well-known jazz musicians from Klaipėda, including Saulius Šiaučiulis (keyboards), Laimonas Urbikas (saxophone), Paulius Stonkus (bass guitar), and Edmundas Federavičius (drums). Their masterful improvisations will accompany the choral singing and fill the park space with exhilarating sounds.
