Join the Mägi Ensemble at our Homecoming Concert! Tuesday, November 1, at Stone Way Café, from 6pm to 8pm.
We're so excited to be back! The Mägi Ensemble just returned from our most recent tour and cultural exchange in Riga, Latvia. Now that we are home, we'd love share with you the program we shared in Riga.
While in Riga, we performed a full-length concert at Niceplace Mansards and St. Saviour's Church, a joint concert with fellow women's ensemble, BALTA, at St. Mary Magdalene Church, and the Sunday service at Riga Dom with choruses Dzintars and Rasa. In addition to our performances, we toured the National Library of Latvia, attended the rehearsal of Putni, and dipped our feet in the Baltic Sea.
It is important to us that we be ambassadors for the choral music that galvanized the people of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania as they earned their independence. In order to continue our mission, we intend to perform at College Music Society National Conference in Santa Fe, record a second CD, and embark on an extended tour to the Baltics in 2018. Donations to cover the costs of this work are very much appreciated and can be given through our website or at the concert.
We hope to see you there!
