On December 14th at 18:30 at the Great Hall of the University of Latvia, Raiņa bulvāris 19, Riga, the Concert “At Christmas United by Music” will take place, where jazz musicians from Mainz University of Music – Lea Reichel and Lukas Langguth – will perform with a special program.

Lea Reichel’s voice sounds like a warm embrace. She breathes new life into song lyrics and sings each note directly into the audience’s heart. Her words are carried by the piano sounds of Lukas Langguth, which cover the spectrum from dreamy to ecstatic in all nuances. Grown up in pop, trained in jazz, Lea and Lukas find a distinctive sound and present a number of well-known songs without losing their originality.

Lea Reichel has been studying jazz and popular music at the Mainz School of Music since 2019, majoring in vocals. Since 2020 she is a member of the State Youth Jazz Orchestra of Bavaria. Through her participation in “Jugend Jazzt” she received a scholarship for the “New York Voices INT. Vocal Jazz Camp 2021”.

Lukas Langguth studied jazz piano assisted by Prof. Rainer Böhm in Nuremberg from 2018 – 2022 and won numerous awards during this time, including the Future Sounds competition or the soloist prize of the “Junge Müchner” Jazz Award.

The Baltic-German University Liaison Office organizes a concert in Riga every year. “Our main aim is to promote scientific cooperation between Germany and the Baltic States by organising scientific events and supporting projects, but every year during Advent we organise a concert featuring musicians from German universities. Although the previous two years the concert could not take place, we are pleased to be able to continue this Christmas tradition this year”, says Ieva Pranka – the Executive Director of the Office.
