A chance to hear two parts of the anniversary programme if you missed the concert in the opera: Wednesday, 10th June 19:00 at the St Peter's Church in Riga!

The summer concert will be organized by the Culture Organization Union of Riga City. Two new pieces - "Putna miegā" (In Bird's Sleep) by Ešenvalds and "Teika par mums" (A Tale About Us) - will be featured from the three-part concert that was held on the stage of Latvian National opera in May.

We are looking forward to seeing you!

On 25th May 2015 (7 pm) one of the best European amateur choirs, Youth Choir "Kamēr...", will celebrate its 25th year anniversary with a beautiful concert at the Latvian National opera for their faithful audience.

Three newly commissioned opuses by composers Ēriks Ešenvalds, Raimonds Tiguls and Gabriel Jackson will be performed. Choir's artistic director and principle conductor is Jānis Liepiņš, however, in this concert the choir will sing under the baton of several conductors who have begun their way into choral music either as conductors, choir masters or singers of "Kamēr..." - firstly, of course, the founder and long-standing director and conductor of the choir Māris Sirmais, as well as assistant conductors Ainārs Rubiķis, Inita Kamarūte, Mārtiņš Ozoliņš, Aivis Greters and former singers Līga Celma, Artūrs Ancāns and Kaspars Ādamsons.
