The State Choir LATVIJA is one of the world’s most important professional choirs.

Along with their Artistic Director and Chief Conductor, Māris Sirmais, they present here a rich programme of Latvian/ Baltic music alongside music by Irish composers. This includes Arvo Pärt’s The Deer’s Cry, a setting of the well-known ‘St Patrick’s Breastplate’ commissioned by Louth Contemporary Music Society in 2007.

The State Choir LATVIJA has collaborated with world-renowned symphony orchestras including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra, the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, The Cadaqués Orchestra, The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, The Singapore Symphony Orchestra, and others, performing with such outstanding conductors as Mariss Jansons, Andris Nelsons, Kirill Petrenko, Sylvain Camberling, Zubin Mehta, Neeme Järvi, Jaap van Zweden, Paavo Järvi, David Zinman, Simone Young, Tõnu Kaljuste, and others.

The State Choir LATVIJA is internationally acclaimed both for its academic excellence as well as its innovative projects.
