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 traveled to Latvia during the Soviet occupation. Since Baltic independence we have returned to Latvia numerous times to perform and to record. We also regularly participate in the Latvian "Dziesmu Svētki", or Song Festivals, held in Latvia and abroad.
The 2018-2019 season marks our 43rd. We hope to see you for the celebration in New York of Latvia's centenary and at our annual Advent concert.
