Academy of Music – Free concerts of future stars

The Latvian Academy of Music has given the world some of its finest stars in the night-sky of classical music – Elīna Garanča, Andris Nelsons, Maris Jansons, just to name a few. Yet, they all started somewhere, and they all (often) share the same first stage for their performances. It is the stage of their alma mater – the Jāzeps Vītols Latvian Academy of Music. On this same stage, to this very day, there are young musicians performing their music, and these concerts are often for free or for a symbolic entrance fee, giving you the masters of the music world, the untamed creativity of the young, and some late afternoon/pre-dinner musical delight.

Information about upcoming concerts can be found on the wall next to the entrance in the academy from Kr. Barona street. The concerts are mostly held on weekdays at 5 pm or 6 pm, and the small fee, if any, might be charged right at the entrance in the grand hall on the second floor.
