Riga Jurmala Musical Soirées
Although this summer’s highly anticipated Riga Jurmala Music Festival was forced to suspend its full-scale programme until next year, organizers couldn’t just leave the audience without a few rather special musical encounters. This time, Riga itself turns into a stage!
In July and August, the Riga Jurmala Music Festival is offering a series of enchanting summer evenings accompanied by timeless classical melodies. However, the Festival will switch its ordinary indoor format and head outdoors – to Riga’s parks, streets, and industrial areas.
During multiple open-air sessions of pre-recorded concerts, locals and visitors to the city are invited to enjoy select pieces from the symphony orchestra programme of the Festival’s 2020 edition. The recordings are played as if the sound were emanating from the cityscape itself – from the trees, bushes, and other hidden corners, thus creating an overwhelming audial experience enhanced with light projections and picture-perfect settings.
The first events are planned from July 9 to 11 at 20:00 – 22:30 in the square in front of the Latvian National Opera, playing the repertoire of the cancelled festival concerts
