World Festival Singers on Sing Along Tour with THE CREATION

Rehearsing a symphonic work in a few days only and then finally perform it in concert? Joining the World Festival Singers makes it possible!

Next year singers from all over the world are invited to Riga to become a part of the World Festival Singers and perform Joseph Haydn's last spiritual oratorio "The Creation" in the Riga Cathedral. With "The Creation" Haydn created probably the most important contribution to the genre of the oratorio in the Viennese Classic.

The World Festival Singers will be accompanied by the Latvian Festival Singers, a project choir consisting of about 100 professionally trained singers from the Latvian choral scene, as well as the Latvian National Orchestra.Under the direction of Nicolas Fink, who has already worked with the Berlin Radio Choir, among others, the oratorio will be performed on July 21 at 6 p.m. in the Riga Cathedral, the Cathedral Church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Latvia and the biggest Baltic Church.

The project of the World Festival Singers will be part of the Grand Prix of Nations & 3rd European Choir Games from the July 19-21, 2017. To date, more than 200 singers have registered for THE CREATION. Interested singers as well as groups can register via the official Sing Along website.
