It just so happens that, quite symbolically, the competition participants are from Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany – the countries through which the historical Amber Road passed. The “Amber Avant-Garde” show starts at 2:30 p.m., whereas the award ceremony, featuring the “Riga 2014” musical ambassadors – members of “Latvian Voices” – will begin at 4:30 p.m.
