As a part of the 4th International Boys Choir Festival “Rîgas Doms” a masterclass for leaders of Latvia’s children’s choirs were held at Riga Dom Choir School (Kalnciema ielâ 10/12, Riga). Masterclass took place on a single day of April 27. The conductors of participating choirs shared their experience of nurturing the precious talent and schooling boys’ voices.

We were especially delighted that we were joined by our long-time patron Jean Pierre van Avermaet, who brought us the news from Academy of Youth Choirs of European Union.

 
Theme: “… and this is how I teach our boys to feel their breathing right…”
