REGULATIONS OF FESTIVAL – CONTEST FOR BOYS “RIGAS DOMS”


“Since the times of J. S. Bach, boys’ voices have been described with such vivid epithets as the voices of angels or nightingales. The mission of the Contest is to achieve that singing of boys is inspirational to every child, at the same time promoting exchange of creative experience between conductors and vocal teachers”.

says Janis Erenstreits, the founder of the Contest.

The II International Solo and Duet Singing Festival–Contest for boys “Rīgas Doms” is organised by Vocational Education Competence Centre National School of Arts “Riga Cathedral Choir School” in cooperation with Riga Cathedral Choir School Support Association. The Contest is supported by the Municipality of Riga.
