One of the leading pianists of Lithuania’s new generation, Ugnius Pauliakonis, gave a recital of piano works by Chopin, Debussy and Haydn. Our members and visitors were treated to an excellent concert, and particularly welcomed the background information and introductions provided by Ugnius.
We all appreciated his engagement with the audience, and he kindly agreed to draw the raffle and award the prizes.
At the end of the concert, he was presented with a bouquet from an appreciative fellow-Lithuanian.
Here is a picture taken after the concert. It shows (from left to right) :-

That concert was the last before our Summer break. We will be back with a series of Sunday afternoon concerts starting on 15 September at the United Church of Egham.
Katie Sazanova, flute accompanied by Sally Halsey, piano will be playing pieces by Tchaikovsky, Taffanel and others. All are most welcome. Please visit our website for full details.
