The summer season will reach its midpoint with the choral music programme “Summer Mosaic” presented by the Klaipėda Choir “Aukuras.” Alfonsas Vildžiūnas,Choir’s Artistic Director, says it was quite for some time that he has had “an idea to demonstrate individual abilities of the Aukuras singers in a concert programme. They are talented musicians, indeed, and singing in a choir is just one facet of their diverse talents and activities. Among such musicians whom we are going to put at the centre stage are songwriter and soloist Virginijus Pupšys and Karolis Žioltikovas who is also a talented guitarist and arranger. We are also very pleased to welcome a young singer in our programme – Vytautė Pupšytė who was born and raised in Klaipėda and now pursues her career as jazz singer.”
Vytautė studied choral conducting at the Eduardas Balsys Gymnasium of Arts in Klaipėda when she discovered the records of Ella Fitzgerald, which were to change the direction of her professional path towards jazz music. And even though traditional jazz was not her final destination, she continues to present original projects as a vocalist and songwriter. One of the most compelling voices on the Lithuanian jazz scene today, she will contribute some of her songs to the “Summer Mosaic” in Klaipėda.
