The first public music park in Lithuania recently opened in a city garden in Alytus - the largest city of Southern Lithuania.

Working with the director of the Alytus Youth Symphony Orchestra “Svajone” - who plan to use the instruments for future outdoor lessons and concerts - a public music park has been created in the city garden, positioned near the local Art School.

Families, children and schools can come and create music freely and without any previous experience or formal training on the Percussion Play instruments including; Handpipes, Tubular Bells, Babel Drum, Papilio Bells and a trio of Cajon Drums.

Almost as soon as the park was opened, the students of the surrounding schools rushed to try out the various outdoor musical instruments and hear the different sounds they could make. Last weekend, press, local residents, families and friends were all invited to wrap up warm and come along to play on the outdoor instruments together with members of the Alytus Youth Orchestra in an official opening ceremony. The opening was a huge success.

The Alytus Youth Symphony Orchestra ”Svajone” was established in 2005 and consists of 60 musicians most of whom are either the students of Alytus Music School, its graduates or teachers. Svajone means "dream" in Lithuanian and in this particular Alytus city park, dreams really can come true.
