BLAGOVEST - 30
One could write volumes of books about the choir's excellence, successes and adventures, which are summarized in a few paragraphs in the official choir biography. Everyone will have their own memories of what is actually contained in these words. But the main thing for us is that during these years "Blagovest" has become a second family for its members and always expected friend for its audience.
Today, under the leadership of our Maestro Aleksandrs Brandavs, we celebrate the 30th anniversary of “Blagovest”. Looking forward to meeting you soon, we sincerely congratulate our Maestro, “Blagovest” singers, conductors, choirmasters, soloists, partners, friends, supporters and audience of all times!
About the choir
Riga Orthodox Chamber Choir BLAGOVEST from Latvia was founded in 1990 with an aim to popularize forgotten treasures of Russian sacred music, which makes the most part of the choir's repertoire.
The choir has wide range of interests: from monophonic neumatic chants, called znamenniy raspev, based on Byzantine church music up to contemporary composers’ quests of spirituality. Various secular compositions of outstanding Russian, Latvian, and Western composers are included in the choir's repertoire as well. Read more
