Latvian Voices


The vocal group Latvian Voices was born in Germany on Christmas time in 2009. Seven young singers from Riga thrilled the audience. 
In the first two years of its existence the Latvian Voices refined their musical experiences in workshops and master classes with The King’s Singers (2010, 2011) and The Hilliard Ensemble (2011).
Approximately three quarters of their concerts girls perform outside Latvia and has brought home quite a few noteworthy first prizes and awards from their travels – victories in competitions vokal.total (Graz, Austria), A CAPPELLA (Leipzig, Germany), World Choir Games (Cincinnati, USA), etc.
Latvian Voices perform music of different historical ages and genres. Still their hearts belong to the Latvian folk song. Groups’ stage costumes are in-weaved with Sun symbols of the ancient Latvians, which are like small amulets that accompany girls all around the world.

With the singing legends from England, The King’s Singers, the Latvian Voices will be on stage to premiere a new composition by the Latvian composer Eriks Ešenvalds.
