Project description:

This year, the Nature Concert Hall will take place in Gauja National Park near Sigulda. Residents and guests of Sigulda and Sigulda Region will be offered to go on various tours, participate in the Nature Concert Hall’s exploration laboratories and creative workshops and, after dark, become participants in nature, music and video art performances, feeling that they are innately a part of nature, its beauty, might and eternity as times go by. This time, the Nature Concert Hall’s main character is the placoderm, an armoured prehistoric fish that lived over 400 million years ago and is a “contemporary” of the sandstone banks of River Gauja.
