Three for the weekend: Classical music, art, and a bit of the same

Classical music performed at an unlikely place; a bit of the same (winter fun); and art are among the things to hear, see and do this weekend in Latvia.

Classical music at a bar

The Kaņepe Culture Center in central Rīga will, for the next four months, host concerts aiming to attract new (not necessarily young) listeners to classical music at a place where you're not usually liable to hear the genre.

The concert cycle, titled "Music at Midnight", is "designed to attract more attention to the magic of classical music by presenting it in more relaxed way, without the stage/audience division."

In the first concert, the Sinfonietta Rīga String quartet will perform Franz Schubert's "Der Tod und das Mädchen". It takes place at 10 p.m. Saturday and will set you back just €5.

Skiing

Even though skiing featured heavily in last week's events guide, it doesn't hurt to remind people about the fact that winter sports are indeed possible and even fun here despite Latvia's highest point being at some 300 meters above sea level.

Art

A cluster of artists known locally are featured in a tribute exhibition to the late Ilmārs Blumbergs at the Dubulti Art Station.

The place, located at a still-functioning railway station, can be visited each day from 7.15 a.m. to 6.45 p.m. Entrance is free.
