Ready for our annual Advent concert, December 2014
The New York Latvian Concert Choir, Ņujorkas latvieu koris, is a non-professional choral group based in Yonkers, New York, drawing its membership from the tri-state area. While our members are primarily of Baltic background, the calling of the Latvian musical spirit has beckoned others to join us as well!
Founded in 1975, our choir has been devoted to performing masterpieces of Latvian choral, operatic and symphonic literature, and traditional folk music. Our choir also regularly commissions and premiers new works by Latvian composers.
Our choir first travelled to Latvia during the Soviet occupation. Since Baltic independence we have returned to Latvia numerous times to perform and to record.
The 2014-2015 season marks our 39th. Details of this season are available on our Schedule page.
We also regularly participate in the Latvian "Dziesmu Svētki", or Song Festivals, held in Latvia and abroad.

The Latvian National Choir
The Latvian National Choir, a leading exponent of the great Baltic choral tradition, performs an eclectic program of works by Arvo Pärt, 2014 Grammy nominee Ugis Praulins, as well as three U.S. premieres of works by acclaimed Latvian composers Jekabs Janchevskis, Gundega Smite, and Raimonds Tiguls.
Our sincere thanks for the excellent turn-out at our Advent concert! We were particularly gladdened over how well Ilona Rupaine's new Christmas cantata was received and can't wait for our Rīga concert and recording sessions. Thanks also to all who joined afterwards for our social--the joy of music is not just in the performance but in the community it creates. :-)
