Bel Canto Choir Vilnius presents: an intimate spring evening at St Catherine Church in Vilnius

A special premiere – Mass for chorus and classical guitar by Latvian composer and guitarist Kaspars Zemītis

Bel Canto Choir Vilnius, after its last year’s intensive Open to the World concert series, invites listeners to ACOUSTICO, the choir’s first performance of the year. 8PM on Friday, May 24, 2019, Bel Canto Choir Vilnius will present an intimate spring concert, mostly featuring music by contemporary composers from neighbouring Latvia.

ACOUSTICO will also star some of the choir’s good friends – guitarist Saulius Lipčius, one of the country’s best young cellists Augustas Gocentas, children’s percussion ensemble from the Vilnius Methodist Art Centre (director Saulius Auglys), and pianist Raminta Gocentienė.

The highlight of the concert will be the Lithuanian premiere of mass for choir and classical guitar by Latvian composer and guitarist Kaspars Zemītis. This will be performed by the choir together with the composer’s good friend Saulius Lipčius.

Mesa by Kaspars Zemītis is a unique and modern blend of the traditional Latin mass genre together with the sounds of the classical guitar. The contemporary reimagining of the mass is especially calming, tender, and thought-provoking. The composition features a range of solo passages on the classical guitar, which elegantly intertwine with individual vocal parts of the choir.

The finale – Agnus Dei and Amen – stands out with its especially subtle and tender soprano solo, whose fluttering, wordless duet creates a musical contrast with the slower, more careful choral sounds that follow. This leads to the final section of the mass, Amen, an uplifting ending with the words ‘hallelujah’ and ‘amen’ repeated and eventually fading as the composition reaches its peaceful and calm finale.

During their end-of-spring concert, Bel Canto Choir Vilnius will also perform pieces by well-known contemporary composers Eric Whitacre and Ēriks Ešenvalds, somewhat of a staple of the choir’s recent concerts. The programme also features pieces by pop musicians and composers, such as Carly Simon, Dolly Parton, Josiah Kelley Atwood arranged for choir.


Saulius S. Lipčius is one of Lithuania’s best guitarists and regularly performs with a wide range of musicians around the country. In 2004, together with several other young guitarists, he founded the Baltic Guitar Quartet, considered the best classical guitar ensemble in the Baltic states. Saulius plays not only the classical guitar but also the lute, one of the oldest instruments in the world, rarely heard in Lithuania. He is an alum of the Lithuanian Academy of Theatre and Music and is a lecturer of classical guitar and chamber performance.

Augustas Gocentas is a student of the prestigious Sibelius Academy and one of the best young cellists in Lithuania. He regularly performs in international competitions, takes part in master classes, and plays concerts. Augustas was invited to perform in the prestigious student orchestras of The Juilliard School and the Sibelius Academy in concerts in Helsinki, Stockholm, and New York and has also taken part in many joint projects with the Latvian and Lithuanian National Symphony orchestras and other musicians.
