Riga Cathedral Girls’ Choir TIARA (Latvia), Gondwana Latitude 34 (Australia) and SCC Young Men’s Choir (Australia) perform on day two of the Great Southern Series in Verbrugghen Hall, Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
Riga Cathedral Girls’ Choir TIARA is one of the most vivid musical ensembles in the concert life of Latvia. Creative collaboration with contemporary composers is a high priority for the choir which has premiered many works of Latvian and foreign composers. TIARA has performed in many European festivals and won several international competition prizes. In 2017 it was among the invited participants of 11th World Symposium on Choral Music in Barcelona.
- Artistic Director/Conductor – Aira Birzina
Gondwana Latitude 34 brings together fine young adult voices from across Australia. Their sound is an exciting combination of fresh and vibrant tone sophistication. The national ensemble was established by Lyn Williams AM in 1997. The choir performs music that is close to their hearts: new Australian works which capture the mystery and grandeur of our land and display the cultural diversity of the Australian people. The work of the choir is a powerful expression of the determination of young Australians to work together to create extraordinary music.
- Conductors – Rowan Johnston and Elizabeth Scott
