April 21-30. Bell-ringing concerts are going to be held at Kaluga churches for the entire week.
The 8th Copper Wind Bell ringing Festival is going to be held with the blessing of the Metropolitan of Kaluga and Borovsk. According to tradition it will begin at John the Baptist Cathedral. Bell ringing mastery will be displayed by both beginners and professionals.
As the festival organizer, a bell ringer with 23-years of experience, Vladimir Paichadze, says “Nine years ago during Holy Week me and other bell ringers used to just go to churches and ring. And used to put up the notices that there would be bell ringing concerts. We decided that the next year we’d definitely have a festival”.
