It’s time again. Yesterday I travelled to Riga once more, together with our Artistic Director Ralf Eisenbeiß. From the airport we went almost directly to the first meetings this week. Mainly all major concerts and main events were on the agenda like Opening and Closing Ceremonies and also one of the greatest highlights, the concert in Mežaparks. It’s going to be a fantastic show and after my visit at the Latvian Song & Dance Celebration last summer, I can hardly wait for another concert at this fantastic place – together with you!

In the evening we watched the ice hockey match between Dinamo Riga and Torpedo Ninzny Novgorod in the Arena Riga together with our partners. Not only it was my first visit of an ice hockey game but also it was in the Arena Riga, our venue for Opening, Closing and Awards Ceremony. On Wednesday we’re coming back to take a closer look and discuss details about the stage etc.

Today there’s the press conference to come first and we’re going to announce how many choirs already registered for the World Choir Games 2014… Exciting!
