Youth choir "Kamēr..." and its conductor Jānis Liepiņš invites you to a major concert on 3rd April (6 pm) in St. John's church, Riga. Its title "Vasks. Tabakova. Pärt" already hints its contents, namely pieces for choir and string orchestra by Pēteris Vasks, who is celebrating his 70th birthday this year, Arvo Pärt who turned 80 last year and the young Bulgarian-British composer Dobrinka Tabakova.

Two of the compositions will be performed in Latvia for the first time - Pärt's "Stabat mater" for mixed choir and string orchestra and Tabakova's "Centuries of Meditation" for choir, string orchestra and harp solo. Both will take place in the middle part of the concert and will be surrounded by music of Vasks, who is a lasting partner, friend, advisor and supporter of the choir, having dedicated several opuses to "Kamēr...". This time, the first and the third part from the cycle "3 Poems by Czeslaw Milosz" and the meditative "The Fruit of Silence" will be performed.

Tickets are available on or at their box offices.
