For the past six years, I have been working as CEO of the Liepāja Concert Hall “Great Amber'' in Latvia. Forehand I had been operating as Executive Director of the State Chamber Orchestra Sinfonietta Rīga. From 2014 - 2019 I was a part of the project management team of the Baltic Sea Festival in Stockholm. In May 2022 I obtained the position of the council member of the Latvian Music Academy.
Why is it exactly the right time now to take part in the EMTBF programme that tackles the challenges in European music?
"Liepāja is preparing to become the European Capital of Culture in 2027 and this is a great opportunity to discover the most innovative and effective ways on how classical and contemporary music can become a part of the agenda for young audiences."
What are you looking forward to the most in the program?
"I am expecting that the actual program would let me look at the industry in a broader sense and create new partnerships with European colleagues!"
