  • New Year’s Eve Concert of the Klaipėda Carillon
Description
Since olden days, bells hoisted to the top of city towers have summoned people to rejoice and celebrate, pray and fight off the intruders.
 
This year, like many years before, the bells of the Klaipėda Carillon will ring again, inviting to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Carillonneur Kęstutis Kačinskas will greet us on Christmas Day with traditional hymns and carols heard from the tower of the Klaipėda Central Post Office, while carillonneur Stanislovas Žilevičius will accompany us into the New Year with some festive carillon music. The festive toll of bells will hover above the city, echoing with notes of joy – joy to the world, joy to us all. It’s the time to greet each other, celebrate and be merry!
