Kaunas International Carillon Music Festival 2022 

September 3/12:00 - 22:00

Let’s welcome the first Saturday of autumn with the harmonious sounds of bells. For the sixth time, Kaunas International Carillon Music Festival returns to the garden of the Vytautas the Great War Museum. The festival’s theme— “Unity of Bells”— will intertwine Baltic songs and compositions by Lithuanian authors, original compositions by foreign artists, and carillon compositions by Ukrainian artist.
The residents and guests of Kaunas will be presented with four carillon music concerts. One of which will be Iryna Riabchun’s special programme “Brave to be Ukraine”— a performance full of unity, friendship and hope, inviting all to remember and support those fighting for freedom.
