Together with other singers, Erika has established Klaritas Vocal Ensemble in Toronto. The group, with members Skaidrīte Leja, Erika Yost, Sarah Bijons (not pictured here), Vaira Gertners and fellow composer Rita Strautiņa, will focus on sacred music, arrangements of Latvian folk songs, and newly composed works.

Klaritas in rehearsal

We are grateful to Saint Andrew’s Evangelical Latvian Lutheran Church and Saint John’s Evangelical Latvian Lutheran Church for allowing us to rehearse in their Church. It is vital to our musical work to have access to such quality acoustics.

Seeking one more singer

We are currently hoping to expand our group with the addition of another second alto voice. This will bring our total to 6 singers, and expand the choice of vocal repertoire available to us. Please contact me for an audition if you are interested in joining us!
