In ceremonial event in the Supreme Court that had been dedicated to 91st anniversary of proclamation of the Republic of Latvia, on November 17, the united Choir of courts took the floor. This was the first performance of the Choir.
The Choir of courts, in which judges and employees of the Supreme Court, the Administrative regional court, the Court of the Central district of Riga city, the Land book and Office of Prosecutor, since September have come to rehearsals twice a week. Conductors Daiga Stube and Ivita Poriete work with the choir.
The beginning of community singing was established last year already, when senators Jautrite Briede and Veronika Krumina suggested to unite all those, who wanted to sing, in the choir of the Supreme Court. Daiga Stube, who was the employee of the court that time, also sang in the choir, and later she put herself at the head of the choir as conductor. Unfortunately, the community singing had run short, but this autumn it revived in new quality – the choir of the Supreme Court expanded till the united Choir of courts, and Daiga Stube resumed her studies in Latvian Academy of Music in the Department of Choir conducting and put herself at the head of the choir.
In its debut, the Choir of courts sang the anthem of Latvia, Latvian folk songs „Riga rings” and „Tell, tell, tongue” in arrangement of Janis Cimze, and „Blow, the breeze” in the arrangement of Andrejs Jurjans, and also „Song of Lilioms” of Imants Kalnins.
The ceremonial event that is dedicated to anniversary of proclamation of the Republic of Latvia, is annual tradition in the Supreme Court. This year in the event ten Marks of Long Services of the Supreme Court also had been given to employees, who have worked in the Supreme court for 15 and 10 years.
