Rucava Evangelical Lutheran Church

From 4 August until 20 August the “Rimbenieks” Music Festival, which is being held for the third time already, organized by the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra in cooperation with the Local Government of the South Kurzeme Municipality, will tour South Kurzeme with 10 different concerts.

The main focus of the Festival will be on chamber music, which will be performed by ensembles consisting of Liepāja Symphony Orchestra musicians, involving other soloists as well.

A serenade is love music to play in the late night hour. There is nothing better than surrendering to the tender charm of woodwind instruments, the immortal genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (the slow part of his Serenade is one of the world's highest achievements in the realm of absolute beauty) and the imaginative tapestry of countless voices and accompaniments of Richard Strauss in the summer sunset hour.
