Membership in IFCM World Choral EXPO (30/11/2015)
"Musica Baltica"director Solvita Sējāne took part in the IFCM World Choral EXPO, Macau (China). Due to high demand, the organizers lengthened the forum by 2 days, and its activities began on the 10th November. It was a unique opportunity to introduce Asian choral singers and conductors (together around 15000 participants) to Latvian music, the newest publications and the best latvian composers, as well as, together with our partners Edition Peters, to take part in discussion with dealers and distributers. Special attention was paid to Ēriks Ešenvalds', Rihards Dubra's and Vytautas Miškinis' choral anthologies (6 collections), 2 collections for female choir (Musica Baltica Anthology for Upper Voices), a collection for male choirs, a collection of Christmas songs for choir (Baltic Christmas). The choir „Balsis” gave excellent masterclasses demonstrating "Musica Baltica" publications. There was an enormous amount of interest, and an invitation was given to take part in the China International Chorus Festival in July 2016, Beijing. There are approximately 60,000 choirs in China.
