St. Petersburg

Sunday Carillon Concerts

Jan 1 - Dec 31 2018       Petropavlovskaya krepost 3
Every Sunday at 15:00, students and graduates of the carillon faculty of St. Petersburg State University give a free carillon concert in Petropavlovskaya Tower. A carillon is a musical instrument that is typically housed in the bell tower (belfry) of a church or municipal building. The instrument consists of at least 23 cast bronze, cup-shaped bells, which are played serially to produce a melody, or sounded together to play a chord. A traditional manual carillon is played by striking a keyboard – the stick-like keys of which are called batons – with the fists, and by pressing the keys of a pedal keyboard with the feet. The carillon is the second heaviest of all extant musical instruments, only ranking behind the largest pipe organs!



Every Sunday 15:00 Jan 1 2018 - Dec 31 2018
