For a country of merely 2 million people, Latvia has produced a disproporionately large numer of world class classical musicians who work and perform with the best orchestras, and delight audiences in the most renowled concert halls and opera houses around the world. Through the concert cycle Born in Riga we welcome the stars back home in Riga for individual and joint concerts.
