“Blagovest” invites to the Concert in Riga Dome Cathedral
The choir will present a diverse program, reflecting the rich creative experience of “Blagovest” for over 25 years, with the emotional fulfillment inherent to the choir and its maestro. Along with orthodox chants and compositions of beloved composers: Alexander Arkhangelsky, Alexander Grechaninov, Sergey Rachmaninov, Alfred Schnittke, and others, traditionally included in the choir's repertoire, “Blagovest” will also sing compositions of Da Palestrina, William Albright and Lucija Garuta, as well as the Psalm No.150, written by Georgs Pelēcis for the choir “Blagovest”, in the new arrangement by the author.
The concert is organized with the support of the State Culture Capital Foundation and the Education, Culture and Sports Department of Riga City Council, in the frame of the 5th International Riga A Capella Festival.
After the concert, the choir will travel long distance to represent Latvia in the Grand Prix of Nations within the 4th Asia Pacific Choir Games in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
