Continuing the thematic line of last year, this festival will feature classical, folk and electronic music, performed by well-known Lithuanian carillonneurs and guests from abroad. The music selection for the festival is truly varied: the audience will have a chance to hear pieces from Polish, American and French films, well-known and slightly forgotten classics and various folkloric rhythms. The citizens of Kaunas and city guests will also have the opportunity to have a look inside the carillon tower: the concerts will be broadcasted live on a big screen at the square.
We invite you to further explore this unique instrument and its possibilities!
All festival events are free of charge.
