Good news for JVLMA Mixed Choir

During the summer of 2020, the artistic director of the JVLMA Mixed Choir, conductor Jānis Ozols had an idea - to enrich the choral music repertoire with new a cappella songs, which would be united by the motto "Love to the choir song".

Several beloved and well-known composers in Latvia - Selga Mence, Rihards Dubra, Mārtiņš Brauns, Georgs Pelēcis, Līga Celma-Kursiete, Anna Ķirse, Juris Vaivods, Jānis Lūsēns, Andris Vecumnieks, Rihards Zaļupe and Madara Pētersone - agreed to participate in the creation of the song cycle.

Eleven newly composed choir songs, which are being created with the support of the State Cultural Capital Foundation, are hopefully going to be performed at the JVLMA Mixed Choir concert in the autumn of 2021. The previous pieces of the composers are a confirmation that most of them will find their place in the repertoire of the Latvian Song Celebration in the future and will be performed on the Mežaparks Open-air Stage.
