Concert “Latvia 100” in Riga

Posted by Ģirts Lācis on Laupäev, 20. oktoober 2018

We have visited our friends in Latvia (male choir “Silvicola”) together with Finnish male choir “Esmila”. The fantastic concert took place in a beautiful National Library of Latvia (Latvijas Nacionālā bibliotēka) and concert hall was fully crowded. Thank you our Latvian singing-brothers for a warm welcome and see you all soon in Tartu! In the video you can hear one of the pieces we sang together – Leevi Madetoja “Kaunehin maa”.
Paldies par jusu viesmilibu!
