Mixed choir of the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga was founded the same year as SSE Riga – 1994, and throughout the years it has played an integral role in the school’s social and cultural life. The choir tradition is deeply rooted in the culture of the three Baltic countries, and with choir members representing all three Baltic countries the SSE Riga Choir is in a unique position for carrying this tradition forward. The SSE Riga Choir unites current and former students who are passionate about singing. As a multi-cultural choir, the repertoire surpasses genre, period and national limitations. The concert programmes vary in form and theme, including Medieval, Renaissance, sacred, jazz, and popular music – as well as world ethnic music from India, Africa, the Australian aborigines, and the Native Americans. The SSE Riga Choir has toured throughout Europe and participates locally in the Latvian Song Festivals, Baltic Student Song Festivals, and many other events.
