Summer Music in the Park

Delightful summer nights with music will surely inveigle you into attending the Park Stage of the Klaipėda Concert Hall. The Summer Concert Series to be held in this fresh and shaded setting from June 27th to July 24th, 2018, will be refreshing like the whiff of sea wind and gentle like the touch of a grass straw. The roster for this year’s series offers a delectable blend of classical and popular, jazz and world music influences.

Come and join us for eight summer nights at our backyard park and experience the delight of listening to live music in open air, surrounded by the natural greenery. The nature’s elements – the whispering wind, chirping birds, and gentle susurration of the park – will surely add some extra flavour to the harmonious strains of music and give a special ambiance to the summer evenings.

Please note changes in the opening hours of the Box Office from June 18th to July 25th, 2018:

  • Mon-Fri 2 pm – 6 pm (5 pm – 9 pm, if event starts at 8 pm);
  • closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

In the event of rain, concerts will take place inside the Klaipėda Concert Hall.
