RIGA SINGS – International Choir Competition & Imants Kokars Choral Award

01 May 2019 – 05 May 2019, Riga

Latvia – the Singing Nation – has already proven twice that it’s a fantastic host for international choir events. Following the fantastic successes of the World Choir Games 2014 and the Grand Prix of Nations Riga 2017 & 3rd European Choir Games the Latvian capital will once again welcome choirs from all over the world to “RIGA SINGS – International Choir Competition & Imants Kokars Choral Award” in 2019.

The world famous Latvian conductor and educator Imants Kokars was one of the most outstanding characters in the Latvian and international music community and a founder of the modern Latvian choral conducting school, rector of the Latvian Academy of Music Jāzeps Vītols as well as the founder and artistic director of the Chamber Choir “Ave Sol”. The highlight of “RIGA SINGS” and thus a tuneful monument to Imars Kokars will be the competition of the category winners for the “Imants Kokars Choir Prize”.
