“Jazz under the Linden Trees”
Jazz Classic Trio LT: Saulius Astrauskas (percussion), Arnoldas Gurinavičius (keyboards), Viktoras Labanauskas (double bass)
Soloist Dominykas Vyšniauskas (trumpet)

The very middle of calendar summer will be marked with the concert titled “Jazz under the Linden Trees”. Listeners seated in the shade of the linden trees will have an opportunity to bask in the cool flow of jazz standards performed by Dominykas Vyšniauskas (trumpet) and the Jazz Classic Trio LT. The trio is led by percussionist Saulius Astrauskas who has recently released the first CD of works for percussion instruments by Lithuanian composers.

Having embarked on his solo career rather early in his life, Dominykas Vyšniauskas has appeared at every jazz festival and venue in Lithuania, performed at major jazz festivals abroad and taken part in many international collaborations. As a sideman he has notably performed alongside his father, famous Lithuanian saxophonist Petras Vyšniauskas, and many other internationally acclaimed Lithuanian and foreign jazz musicians. Having graduated from the Stasys Šimkus Conservatory in Klaipėda and the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre in Vilnius, he pursued post-graduate studies at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Amsterdam, Hochschulle für Musik und Theater “Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy” in Leipzig and the Purchase College of the State University of New York. The repertoire of this young talented musician includes jazz standards, his own compositions, and trumpet solo parts in contemporary classical works.
