Spring musical


This project provides an opportunity for children aged from 7-18 years to show their talent in singing, dancing, and performing in front of a wider audience. It is a great opportunity for children to develop creativity, to build their self-esteem, to spend their free time meaningfully and to meet new peers as well as to find joy in music. This is already the third musical done by the Salvation Army Musical School. Children from various places of Latvia attend the Musical School. The previous musical was performed during three weekends in December in Zemgale, Kurzeme and Vidzeme. It was an unforgettable experience both for the participants and the spectators who enjoyed the children’s talents. You can also be a part of this project. If you are 7-18 years old, you can take part in the new season of the musical. The first training will be held in 18th January. But if you are willing to put your effort in making the musical in your spare time and if you have a talent for making decorations, costume sewing skills, choreography or if you want to try to teach dance lessons or vocal lessons, take pictures or shoot a film, or have some other beautiful talent that can help to create the musical, then COME AND JOIN! Help us to create something beautiful! If you have any questions, please e-mail the leader of the Musical School:
