I’m in Riga for the fifth time already – and, finally, it’s the year 2014! Riga is the European Capital of Culture and host city of the 8th World Choir Games from July 9 – 19.

Before the European Capital of Culture opening events start on Friday, I use the opportunity of my trip to check all scores of more than 100 registered Latvian choirs and to prepare them for another checkup by the Artistic Director. In short: Business before Pleasure!

I’m really looking forward to a great weekend full of cultural highlights here in wintery Riga. In the coming days I’m going to tell you more about what I have experienced here. Stay tuned!

Yours
Jelena
