After 12 years together, the members of the vocal-instrumental ensemble “Windy Temper” have decided to embark on new challenges in life and invite all fans, friends and stage colleagues to the farewell concert “Ir labi kopā būt…” (It’s good to be together) on 10 March at 19:00 at the Ventspils Culture Centre.
The ensemble, led by pedagogue Sandra Sproģe, is unique in that most of its members have been making music together since their first days at school. Its origins can be traced back to the Centre Primary School. At that time, they called their musical group “Jautrie draugi” (Fun Friends). As time went on, the compositions and arrangements became more complex. Along came stage experience, professional skills and the honour of winning prizes in various competitions.
Today, they are young musicians who are experienced and heroic, and are often seen on stage. For seven years they have called Ventspils Culture Centre home. The concerts have become a real light parade and a treat for many listeners. They have performed programmes with rock musicians Ivo Fomins, Atis Ieviņš and Rihards Saule. There were concerts both in Kurzeme and on further tours around Latvia. Throughout its existence, the band has worked closely with the sound and light technical support company SIA “VentSystem”.
For the 12th season, the members of “Windy Temper” meet weekly for rehearsals to polish new music, familiar tunes or jazz compositions. But time marches on. Changes have come in the professional learning and the group is now winding down. . The paths of the young people will lead them beyond the borders of Latvia to master new challenges, fulfil new dreams and reach new heights. We wish them the best of luck and invite everyone to the farewell concert “It’s good to be together…”. In the concert programme, the young musicians will look back on the 12 years they spent together, performing well-known hits.
