How has lithuanian song touched your life?

It inspires me to honor my Lithuanian background.
Susan Martin from Toronto Ontario
We shouldn’t keep our fantastic songs all to ourselves! After the Toronto festival, I brought “Čiūdrelė“ to my American high school choir and we performed it. This fall I brought “Oi Šąla šąla” by Vytautas Miškinis to the elite women’s choir at Rutgers University and we’re performing it in its American premiere. Americans can do a great job singing in Lithuanian! (Though “Pempel Pempel” might be pushing it, LOL!)
Aleksandra Brittain from Philadelphia Choir “Laisvė“
It echoes through the rolling hills like it echoes through my heart. It sings of sweet days gone by, and sings of the hope of days to come.
Susan Kazenas from Tampa, Florida
Singing for me is as necessary and as easy as breathing.
Dr.Jonušas from Vilnius, Lithuania
If it wasn’t for song, Lord forbid, it would be like being in jail. A person sings, that’s how he calms himself. Life with songs is completely different.
Kunigunda Zaleckienė from Varėnai, Lithuania
Without song, life would be empty and purposeless. As long as I sing, I feel like I’m alive. It cheers you up and others, too...
