After the huge success of the World Choir Games 2014, we are glad to announce that Riga will once again open its doors widely to become the host city of 3rd European Choir Games and Grand Prix of Nations Riga in 16-23 July, 2017.
In 2014 Riga welcomed 460 international choirs and 27,000 participants from 73 nations, organizing the most ambitious World Choir Games in the event’s history. Bright, colorful and uniting memories help us recall the miracle of being together and the joy and love for choir music, as well as affirm the positive power of culture, the richness of both national identity and diversity, and respect for each other and cultural values.
At present, we invite choirs from all over the world to reunite in Riga in 2017 to celebrate next year’s largest choral event - 3rd European Choir Games and the Grand Prix of Nations, Riga 2017! Once again the beautiful Riga concert halls, churches, parks and squares will be filled with wonderful singing, celebrating a happy reunion, the spirit of competition, outstanding conductor master classes and a wonderful audience!
Application period has begun! We look forward to seeing you in Riga! Let’s be together once again to form a sonorous choir of five continents, confirming that singing together really unites nations!
Let’s sing in Riga 2017
