“Lithuanian Retro”
Cappella‘A Vocal Group: Aušra Smičiūtė, Kristina Jatautaitė, Rasa Serra, Mindaugas Putna
With the participation of Laimonas Urbikas (saxophone), Ąžuolas Paulauskas (percussion)

“Gifted and ambitious singers from Klaipėda” is a description that is often applied to the vocal group Cappella‘A. The audiences admire their singing both a cappella and with instrumental accompaniment. The quartet has garnered several prizes at international competitions and appeared at various jazz festivals in Lithuania.

At the park stage the Cappella‘A vocal group presents the concert programme “Lithuanian Retro”, in which the singers are assisted by saxophonist Laimonas Urbikas and drummer Ąžuolas Paulauskas. This programme features well-known songs by Lithuanian composers, which our parents and grandparents used to sing years ago. It was prepared especially for the 10th North American Lithuanian Song Festival that took place last summer in Chicago. Skinsiu raudoną rožę (I Will Pick the Red Rose) by Algimantas Raudonikis, Saulėlydis tėviškėje (The Sunset at Home) by Benjaminas Gorbulskis, Žalioj stotelėje (At the Green Stop) by Mikalojus Novikas, Viešpaties lelija (Lord’s Lily) by Gintarė Jautakaitė make only a handful of songs from this rich retro programme that is designed to transport the listener back in time. A little bit of jazz and a little bit of Latin rhythms, wonderful voices and Lithuanian oldies on a summer evening will leave you with pleasant memories.
