The programme “Rites of the Jubilee,” marking the 25th anniversary of the Klaipėda Choir “Aukuras,” is a gift of gratitude for all the friends of the Choir and fans of choral music in Klaipėda. At this concert the conductor’s pulpit will be shared by two conductors: one of the founders and current artistic director of the Choir, Alfonsas Vildžiūnas, and guest conductor from the United States, Ira Spaulding.

Born in New York, Ira Spaulding has been active as a concert singer, vocal teacher and conductor in Europe and back in the United States. He continues to travel the world and work with various vocal ensembles, teach voice and vocal literature, give vocal master classes and choral workshops in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. He currently teaches at the City College of New York. He had several previous appearances with the Choir “Aukuras” in Klaipėda where he always enjoys warm reception.
During the jubilee concert Ira Spaulding will conduct choral pieces by American composers to be accompanied by the long-standing collaborator of the Choir, pianist Saulius Šiaučiulis. Whereas Alfonsas Vildžiūnas will take over in the performance of John Rutter’s Requiem, accompanied by an instrumental ensemble.
