About the festival

Vilnius Gospel Music Festival came into being in 2001. Each year the festival attracts a lot of attention of gospel music performers and the audience. The festival is organized by YWCA-YMCA Lithuania, which not only educates about this music genre but also presents local and foreign professional gospel singers, musicians and conductors to the Lithuanian public. This makes a significant impact on the development of the culture of choral music in Lithuania. The festival is a good opportunity for choirs and soloists to improve their musical skills and to broaden their repertoire with the gospel music. It also helps attracting more young people to come to sing in schools or churches and to participate in social activities of various youth centers.
