The 3rd International Festival – Competition of Chamber Ensembles for Young Performers “We play music with friends” took place on May 28th and 29th 2005 in the pearl of Kurzeme, the beautiful town of Kuldīga. It was a great event in the life of our music schools. The organizators were Jazeps Medins Music School of Riga and Ernests Vigners Music School of Kuldiga. The financial support was given by National Culture Capital Foundation, Council of Ministers and the City Council of Kuldīga.
Last year the Festival – Competition gathered 220 children from 26 music schools ( 76 ensembles ) and 86 teachers. We were also happy to meet and listen our friends in music from Vilnius, St.Peterburg, Kauna and Velikije Luki.
