December 2014Ready for our annual Advent concert, December 2014

The New York Latvian Concert Choir, Ņujorkas latviešu 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.

This past spring, we celebrated our founder and artistic director for 40 years, Andrejs Jansons, as he conducted us for the last time as our musical mentor and guide. Andrejs has retired to devote more time to family—we are proud and privileged to carry on the tradition and musical family he created.

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 2015-2016 season marks our 40th. 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.
