He has been artistic director of the award-winning Latvian Youth Choir Balsis since 1998 and has been principal conductor of the Latvian National Song Celebrations since 2008. He is also the principal regional conductor for over 20 choirs in Latvia. As a conductor, he has recorded twelve CDs to date. He is particularly recognized for his interpretation of the repertoire of Baltic composers.
His imaginative and passionate approach to teaching choral technique and interpretation has put (forse manca questa o un’altra parola?) him increasingly in demand as a choral workshop clinician, guest conductor and adjudicator in Latvia and abroad. Ints has led choral workshops for the New York Latvian Choir in America (2000, 2003, 2007, 2009), St. John's Latvian Church in Toronto (2010, 2011), the Polyfollia World Showcase and Marketplace for Choral Singing in Saint-Lô, France (2010) and has coached students of the International Masterclasses for Young Musicians in Ogre, Latvia. These workshops have been attended by approximately 2500 Latvian and 1000 international choristers and conductors.
In addition to an active conducting career, Ints is also a gifted baritone soloist. He is currently the project manager with the office of the European Capital of Culture Riga 2014.
