Military music festival coming to Salaspils

Music lovers will be well advised to march to Salaspils in mid-June where, from June 14 to 16, they can tap their feet along to an international festival of military bands dubbed "The power of music 2024".

Taking part in the festival will be the National Armed Forces Headquarters Orchestra, National Guard Orchestra, National Guard Choir "Stars", and Chamber Ensembles of the National Armed Forces Orchestra, as well as special guests from abroad including the Estonian Defense League big band (Kaitseliidu Big Band) and the rock group "Touch 'N Go" of the orchestra of the United States Air Force in Europe (USAFE).

The festival is taking place for the third year and, as usual, admission to all its concerts is free.

On all days of the festival, between the main concerts, various chamber ensembles of the National Armed Forces Orchestra will play music in the concert venue, playing compositions of both classical, jazz and popular music genres.

"On the third anniversary of the festival, there is great satisfaction both in the work of the National Armed Forces Orchestra during the year since the previous festival, and also for our guests at this year's festival - our sisters and brothers from Estonia and our great allies from the United States of America, who are already visiting Latvia for the second time this year," said Major Andis Karelis, chief conductor of the National Armed Forces and the artistic director of the "Power of Music" festival.

The festival "Power of Music 2024" is organized by the leadership of the National Armed Forces Orchestra in cooperation with the municipality of Salaspils region.
