In 2014, Riga will not only be the European Capital of Culture, but also the World Capital of Choral Music.
The 8th World Choir Games – the world’s largest choir competition – will bring the international flair of the Choir Olympic idea to one of the most traditional singer regions world-wide in the summer of 2014 .
After the amazing success in China 2010 and with the greatest expectations for the United States in 2012, the most impressive and innovative choral event returns to Europe. Latvia as well as the other Baltic States have an impressive history where passionate singing plays a leading role for the entire state.
The World Choir Games, also known as “the Olympics for Choirs”, therefore look forward to a further superb highlight in Riga in 2014. Based on the great national tradition an incredible international choir festival will be organized.
As always the possibilities of participation will be manifold:
Let’s sing and celebrate in Riga, Latvia – The European Capital of Culture in 2014 and the World Capital of Choral singing!
