Performers:Latvian Orthodox Church Male Choir Logos (Riga)
Artistic director priest Ioanne Shenrock
Russian and Jewish Orthodox music
The male choir was founded on the initiative of the priest Ioanne Shenrock, who from the 1990s began to create and develop a choir dedicated to Orthodox music. In November 2013, the choir was transformed into the male choir of the Latvian Orthodox Church and received a new breath. Today, 13 dedicated musicians sing in the choir.
The name of the choir – Logos (the Greek word meaning a thought, teaching) – is deeply symbolic. With the help of words, the choir tries to bring to the audience the idea of hymns, which conveys spiritual and humane teaching and creates a connection between the audience and the musicians.
