Founded in 1936 and restored in 1989, Lithuanian Musicians’ Union continues active tradition of Lithuanian Musics’ Society.
In 1936 prominent musics of the time – Nikodemas Martinonis, Juozas Karosas, Konradas Kaveckas, Antanas Budriunas, Klemensas Griauzdė and others, brought together musicians of different genres in Lithuanian Musicians Society in Kaunas.
It was a significant turning point in the development of musical culture. The approved statutes of the Society indicated that the main "goal is to educate its members in the field of music, and raise the culture of choirs and the art of music". Implementing the provisions of the statutes, the Society began to systematically and actively participate in matters of musical culture, lead Lithuanian choir movement, organized Republican and regional song festivals and choir competitions, took care of new Lithuanian choir music, musical education, qualification of organists and musical teachers, organized popular symphonic and chamber concerts, systematically published a monthly art and science journal "Musical Fields" (“Muzikos barai”).

We believe that artists these days need to have knowledge and skills, which are not necessarily directly related to their profession. We try to carry this message to both, the performers and the audience, to teach how to adapt the artistic skills in new contexts, and the use various elements from other disciplines. We are for the interconnection of the different areas of art which frees creativity and brings in a new perspective. Lithuanian Musicians’ Union combines various creative disciplines, technology, together with music, and promotes a diversified learning and innovation, which is an essential element for the success in the market of contemporary creative industries. The Union encourages performers, who often tend to work separately, to work in a team aiming for a common goal. We state that classical music professionals are able to successfully operate in the modern competitive creative industries and equivalently compete with pop performers. Our goal is to make our members’ performances visual and having a unifying conceptual idea. Therefore we emphasize not only artistic quality, but also to the final presentation of the cultural product, working together with performing arts professionals from various sectors. We believe that this is the best way to transform classical music performances into a strong alternative cultural service, attracting young people and new audiences in Lithuania and around world.
