Prime minister announces death of chorus conductor

The Latvian prime minister Māris Kučinskis has gone on Twitter to offer condolences on the death of Gido Kokars, who has died at the age of 95.

Kokars was a leader of the country’s phenomenal choral tradition.

Is there a prime minister of any other country who can even remember the name of a chorusmaster?
