  Riga Dom Boys Choir   [Rīgas Doma Zēnu Koris]    (est. 1950) Classical Choir of Boys 
Print Friendly Page 
Riga Dom Boys Choir The choir was first established in Latvia in 1950. During the last 30 years, under the leadership of Janis Erenstreits, the boys of the Emils Darzins Music School gained international renown as angelic wonders, capable of producing musical miracles.

In 1990, the boys chose to follow a centuries' old tradition by naming the choir in honour of Riga's 800-year old Dom Cathedral.
