I did my Masters Thesis and lecture recital on Imant Raminsh. He told me some fascinating things about the country of Latvia. I am in the process of applying for a $10,000 grant to go to Latvia next summer and study its music and the impact that it has had on its people and its choirs. The application process requires that I set up an itinerary. I need some information about places and people that I can contact and that I can visit while I am there. I would like to talk to Mr. Raminsh again if I can find a way to reach him. If any of you have any information on how I can contact him, I would truly appreciate it if you would share it with me.
After I decided to pursue this grant, I was informed that the World Choir Games is in Latvia next year. How awesome is that?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
