Youth Chamber Music Days in Druskininkai
The festival, started more than 20 years ago, is designed for the propagation of contemporary music works and ideas of young Lithuanian and foreign composers, for the rise and realization of new projects, for the collaboration of different arts, for the disquisition of problems and the phenomenon of the contemporary music. Youth section of Lithuanian Composers Union yearly organizes the festival (more information on www.mic.lt, www.lks.lt). Starting from 2003, Youth Chamber Music Days in Druskininkai become more and more international. Our Festival has been visited by foreign guests from Norway, Latvia, Finland, Chile, France, Spain, Unites States and Italy. This year we are going to invite young composers from Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, Great Britain, Japan and Turkey. Annually, "Druskomanija" grows up and becomes more and more important in Lithuanian musical life. This year "Druskomanija" enlarged into two towns. The festival starts in Vilnius, and then, as usually, moves to Druskininkai. During many different concerts of young musicians it will be shown a lot of different styles of the contemporary music from Lithuania and abroad – starting from pop and Lithuanian folk songs and arriving to modern electronic sounds and strict academic compositions. In 2008, the musical side of the festival is also expanded into the areas of other arts – theatre, poetry, dance and video art.
