Representative Wind Orchestra of the Lithuanian Ministry of the Interior (Lithuania)
The Representative Wind Orchestra of the Lithuanian Ministry of the Interior was established back in 1935. The orchestra takes part at the events organized by the Ministry and its regulatory bodies, plays at public concerts, performs concert projects as well as thematic programs with participation of solo vocalists and instrumentalists. In fact, although the orchestra is very popular in Lithuania, it never misses a chance to take part in international wind orchestra festivals. Quite a few times the orchestra has participated in competitions organized in Sweden, Poland, Latvia, Germany and Estonia. The orchestra has already recorded and issued eight audio cassettes, seven compact discs and several video cassettes. Egidijus Miknius is art director and conductor of the orchestra.
