Youth choir wins competition in Japan

Latvia's Kamēr... choir has won all of the main prizes at the 32nd Takarazuka International Choir Competiton, held on July 23. The choir won three golden medals in all the categories, as well as the audience award and the Grand Prix of the competition.

About 20 choirs and ensembles flocked to the annual Takarazuka choral event, competing in renaissance/baroque, romanticism, and contemporary choral music and were judged by a professional jury.

In addition to these categories, where Kamēr... sang pieces by Purcell, Bach, Brahms, Rehnqvist and others, the audience chose Kamēr... from amidst of 5 groups to become the audience prize too.

The critically acclaimed Kamēr... choir was founded in 1990 by Māris Sirmais. It's currently conducted by Jānis Liepiņš. 

The choir has won dozens of diplomas, cups, and trophies in various choral competitions, including the Marktoberdorf chamber choir competition, and the World Choir Olympics.
