The Jewish Community of Lithuania invited the American Virtuosi/The Borowsky Family ensemble to perform special concerts honoring the victims of the Holocaust on the occasion of commemoration ceremonies during September 2018. These concerts were combined with the visit of Pope and included the world-premiere of composer Giedrius Kuprevicius’s work, “The Star of David" on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liquidation of the Vilnius ghetto (this concert was internationally televised).
Under the theme "Music: the Best Bridge for All People" programs included compositions by the American Virtuosi and other American composers. In appreciation for their contributions, the American Virtuosi received several awards and distinctions from The Jewish Community of Lithuania, the Embassy of the United States in Vilnius, and Lithuanian social and cultural organizations.
