Born in Latvia

The 8th “Jurmala Festival” – the grandest musical event of the summer – takes place in Dzintari Concert Hall from 17 to 24 July with six wonderful concerts.

The festival will be closed with the concert Born in Latvia, which has already become a tradition of the festival. Musicians of different generations will meet on the same stage. Latvian-born musical starts – new talents, the most prominent artists of Latvian concerts, as well as internationally recognised Latvian musicians, who are always welcomed to perform at home. Among those artists: Aleksandr Antonenko, pianists Evelīna Jēkabsone, Georgy Osokin, one of the brightest singers of the new generation – soprano Ilze Grēvele-Skaraine – outstanding cellist and this year’s Grand Music Award winner Margarita Balanas, as well as percussionist and ballerina Sonja Misiņa. The Jurmala Festival Orchestra will be conducted by Ainārs Rubiķis, the chief conductor of the Berlin Comic Opera.
