The ninth Jūrmala Festival, the grandest musical event of the summer, will take place with ten magnificent concerts from 15 to 23 July at Dzintari Concert Hall, bringing together outstanding Latvian and foreign musicians.
On 20 July, the “Born in Latvia” concert, which has already become a Jūrmala festival tradition, will take place as part of the festival. Musicians of different generations will meet on the same stage. Latvian-born musical stars – new talents, the most prominent artists of Latvian concerts, as well as internationally recognised Latvian musicians, who are always welcomed to perform at home. Artists will include tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko, pianist Vestards Šimkus, accordionist Ksenija Sidorova, as well as talented young musicians. The Jūrmala Festival Orchestra will be conducted by Ainārs Rubiķis, the chief conductor of the Berlin Comic Opera.
