Parks to host military band performances in summer

February 12, 2018

Military bands will perform in 13 Moscow parks and public gardens. The first concert will take place on 19 May in Alexander Garden and the last one on 18 August. Performances will be given in Moscow every Saturday.

The Military Bands in Parks programme leads up to the Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival, which will take place on Red Square on 24 August-2 September.

“This spectacular and truly beautiful project has become a wonderful part of Moscow’s cultural and public life. The idea belongs to city residents who asked us to revive the once popular military band weekend performances in city parks,” said Head of the Department of Culture Alexander Kibovsky.

The summer concert series began in 2016 at the National Exhibition of Economic Achievements (VDNKh). In 2017, military bands gave more concerts at more concert venues.
