Founded in 1960 by Prof. Saulius Sondeckis (Artistic Director and Chief Conductor, 1960–2004) the Lithua- nian Chamber Orchestra (LCO) is recognised as one of the finest and most internationally acclaimed Lithua- nian orchestras. On the 23rd of April, 1960, the Lithu- anian Chamber Orchestra (LCO) began rehearsing as a new formation and invited to its first public concert on the 30th of October the same year to gain instant recognition among the audiences and critics both at home and away.
