This year the 5th Klaipėda Carillon Festival will ring its bells for the centenary celebrations of restored Lithuania. On June 24th, 2018, the ringing of bells will be heard high above and out across the harbour city – a living testimony of our modern country’s century-long history, encouraging us to rethink its significance and pass it on to the future generations. Ringing bells of the Klaipėda Carillon Festival will invite to rejoice in freedom!
The Klaipėda Carillon is currently one of three such instruments in Lithuania whose audible presence has become the signature of our city. It was mounted in the tower of the Klaipėda Central Post Office in 1987 and remained in service until 2006, when it was replaced with the new instrument manufactured by the Royal Eijsbauts Bell Foundry in Asten, the Netherlands.
The newly installed concert carillon has 48 bells, with the tonal range of four octaves and a total bell weight of about five tons, which amounts to ten tons together with the supporting frame structure. The largest bell weighs 900 kilograms.
Organised by the Klaipėda Concert Hall, the Klaipėda Carillon Festival invites the citizens and guests of the harbour city to celebrate the summer solstice with four concerts that will take place during the longest summer day, on June 24th. The ringing of carillon bells hovers high above the city and pervades the air in the old town, but the best spot for focused listening is the courtyard of the Klaipėda Clock and Watch Museum where all concerts are screened live so that the audience may not only hear but also watch carillonneurs perform in the bell tower.
For entire month, starting from June 1st, an exhibition dedicated to the history of the Klaipėda Carillon will be open for viewing in the city centre. We also offer guided tours to the tower of the Klaipėda Central Post Office where you can take a closer look at this rare instrument assisted by our knowledgeable guides.

At noon, on June 24th, the “Midday Bells” will announce the beginning of the festival. The first to set the bells ringing will be carillonneurs Kęstutis Kačinskas and Stanislovas Žilevičius. For almost three decades they have been loyal servants and promoters of this majestic instrument in Klaipėda. Each year they give around 50 concerts, inviting townspeople to carillon music concerts every Saturday and Sunday, as well as on public holidays. They also arrange and compose music for carillon themselves. Some of their compositions and arrangements will be also included in this programme, besides the works by Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis, Balys Dvarionas, Giedrius Kuprevičius, Frank Steijns, and Gijsbert Kok.

All-day pass to the Carillon Festival, valid for all events, is available at € 6. No discounts apply.
