From May 25-31, 2014, BALSIS will return to the United States, where it will participate in the New York Latvian Concert Choir’s annual choir camp at the Latvian Church Camp in the Catskills, together with the Montreal choir „Atbalss” and singers from Toronto and Ottawa. After the camp, the choir will give concerts for the Latvian communities in Boston, Washington and at the New Jersey Latvian Society’s property „Priedaine”, in addition to a concert at The Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest in New York City and a private concert at a local music school.
At the end of September, BALSIS will be leaving for its fourth tour of Sardinia, one of the most beautiful and mysterious Italian islands between the Sea of Sardinia, the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.
The tour includes two concerts on September 26 and 27 in Sassari as part of the international choral festival "Nella Città dei Gremi", followed by a concert on September 28 in Olbia.
From August 3 – 17, 2013, Youth Choir BALSIS participated in the international Bayreuth Festival of Young Artists (Festival Jünger Künstler Bayreuth). As part of the festival, the choir gave four concerts, presenting both sacred repertoire and folk song arrangements. All concerts were well-received by the audiences, earning the choir standing ovations every time.
