National Philharmonic Society of Lithuania is the biggest concert agency in Lithuania, which was granted the status of national cultural institution in July 1998.

LNPh is located in Vilnius. There are two halls on the premises – Concert Hall and Chamber Hall.

LNPh unites the best Lithuanian performers: Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra (established in 1940, artistic director and chief conductor Juozas Domarkas), M.K. Čiurlionis String Quartet, Vilnius String Quartet, chamber ensemble Musica humana, and two soloists.

LNPh organises symphonic and camber music concerts in Lithuania and abroad, concerts dedicated to various composers, solo recitals, concert series, featuring Lithuanian and international collectives and performers, and devotes major attention to the national repertoire. The most prominent international performers are invited to give concerts in Lithuania including violist Yuri Bashmet, cellist David Geringas, violinist Gidon Kremer, pianist Denis Matsujev, conductor Riccardo Muti and orchestra Filarmonica della Scala, composer and conductor Krzysztof Penderecki, jazz celebrities Al Di Meola and Al Jarreau, to name just a few.

The collectives of the National Philharmonic Society of Lithuania represent Lithuania abroad. In 2004–2006, the geography of concert tours of Lithuanian musicians covered nearly every European country, the USA and Japan. Aiming to promote the national repertoire, the Society annually holds a number of concerts featuring works as well as premieres by Lithuanian composers.

LNPh participates in diverse national and international projects and programs, and collaborates with various cultural organisations.
