On behalf of Jāzeps Vītols Latvian Academy of Music please accept my most sincere greetings to  the participants of the 5th International Choral Conductors Competition. This time the competition bears a closely tied to the 70th anniversary of the Department of Choir Conducting of our academy. Latvia is famous for its long-standing and rich choir music and choral singing traditions. The international appearance of our choirs is truly outstanding.

I am convinced that this competition will also strongly encourage the young and talented choir conductors to follow their professional challenges and make our international cultural relationshipcloser.

My sincere wishes also to the jury and I am most grateful to the academic staff of  the Choir Conducting Department of JVLMA as  due to their persistence, determination, high managerial and professional skills such a  choir conductors’ competition takes place already for the fifth time.
