Go back

This Saturday, May 21, will see the first Military Bands in the City Parks concert of the season. The show is to unfold on the premises of the Museum and Main Cathedral of the Russian Armed Forces.

Supported by the Russian Ministry of Defence, the Directorate of the Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival carries on its activities to revive the beautiful tradition of military orchestras performing in the city’s parks and gardens, squares and lanes, and other important venues.

The Cathedral Square will welcome the Central Band of the Russian Navy named after Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, while the Exemplary Military Band of the Honor Guard will perform on the Memory Lane. Besides, all the guests will have a chance to witness the stunning performance of the Suvorov Cadet Band of the Lieutenant General Valery Khalilov Moscow Military Music College, usual headliner and showstopper of the Spasskaya Tower Festival.

At 1pm (13:00) the Cathedral Square will host the solemn opening of the 2022 Military Bands in the City Parks Season featuring participation of Major General Timofey Mayakin, Head of the Russian Military Band Service — Chief Military Conductor and Music Director of the Spasskaya Tower Festival, Mr Sergey Smirnov, Head of the Spasskaya Tower Festival Directorate, and Mr Sergey Paronjanov, Head of the Russian Armed Forces Museum and Cathedral Complex.
