Riga Vocal Quartet, consisting of the best ensemble singers in Latvia, will perform "Exile Meditations" by the British contemporary composer Gabriel Jackson, which combines Latvian poetry with manuscripts from Middle Eastern refugees, as well as "The Little Match Girl Passion" by the famous American composer David Lang.
Riga Vocal Quartet was founded in 2017 by the American conductor and singer Christopher Walsh Sinka, who currently lives and works in Riga. The Quartet consists of current and former singers of Latvian Radio Choir and the State Academic choir "Latvija". In July 2017, the Quartet played the world premiere of Gabriel Jackson's "Exile Meditations" at the closing concert of the European Latvian Union Summer Conference with great success, and in April this year, at the prestigious festival Passiontide at Merton.
Typical to the Chamber Hall series PERSONALLY - meeting with the musicians after the concert, for a chance to enjoy conversations in an informal atmosphere with a cup of coffee from the sponsor "Andrito Kafijas Grauzdētava".
