The Program

Known around the world for its “miraculously cohesive sound” (Guardian, U.K.) and imaginative programs, the Latvian Radio Choir returns to the White Light Festival for a luminous evening of a cappella music. Pairing transcendent Mahler with contemporary Latvian composers and a beautiful meditation by visionary Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov, the choir moves seamlessly between Latvian, Old Slavonic, Tibetan, German, and English texts to illuminate a universal yearning for inner peace.

“An ensemble of the first magnitude … a tour de force.”
– Bachtrack
“A revelation.”
– Sydney Morning Herald
“Magical and mystical.”
– Bachtrack
