Description

You are invited to a Fundraising Gala in support of Kristijonas Donelaitis Lithuanian School (KDLM) of greater Washington, DC, on April 28th at 6 PM, at the Embassy of the Republic of Lithuania to the United States of America, 2622 16th Street NW, Washington, DC.

The Kristijonas Donelaitis Lithuanian School was founded in 1961 and is one of the most important, established Lithuanian organizations in the Washington, DC area. It serves as an integral part of the local and national Lithuanian-American community.

Our Gala will begin with Belgian craft beer and wine tasting, and delicious hors d’oeuvres. The fundraising night will feature a performance by Lithuanian jazz singer Simona Minns.

About the performer:

Simona Minns is a jazz singer, composer, arranger and artistic director originally from Lithuania, currently living and working in Boston MA. Simona has degrees in jazz vocal performance from The Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theater and a contemporary composition degree from Berklee College of Music of Boston MA.

In 2015 Simona was awarded the Berklee Outstanding Jazz Vocalist Award and on May 20th 2017 released her debut album "A Hunger Artist", which can be found on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora and major streaming platforms, as well as physical CD’s.

As a performer she embraces a wide range of styles and genres, such as jazz standards, her own jazz arrangements, contemporary music, original compositions and traditional Lithuanian music.

Simona's original works are influenced by jazz, classic rock and folk music traditions. Her compositions have been written for drama plays, string quartets, orchestras, jazz combo, big bands, non-traditional instrumental settings. Simona is a full time musician, often touring, and to Washington DC she will be coming after her winter tour in Australia and New Zealand.

Come out to support a great cause and enjoy terrific wine, beer, food, music and dancing!

As we look forward to the 2018-2019 school year, your support is vital to growing our school by helping us welcome new children, ages 2 to 14 years, to Kristijonas Donelaitis Lithuanian Schooland drawing their families into the wider Lithuanian community. The funds raised will help develop student resources, award our dedicated teachers, and provide authentic Lithuanian cultural experiences and language education for more than 70 students.
