The concert is dedicated to the opening of the festival where the audience will not only meet the festival’s musical ensembles from Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Slovak, Ukraine but will also enjoy a world premiere. 

Having set a goal - to expand circles of fans and admirers of national traditions and to attract the younger generation, organizers of the festival chose a way of rapprochement of the ancient spiritual values with a contemporary musical language. Thus since 2009, the festival “Pokrovskye kolokola” presented such World music style works as: “Old faith” by LinasRimša, “Etno sphere – a new breath of traditions” by Andrej Doinikov, “The folk rhapsody” by Gediminas Rimkus Rimkevičius, “From this city” by Jonas Jurkūnas, “Women's song” by Linas Rimša which were presented with huge success in the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Concert Hall, other concert halls of Lithuania and abroad. The Lithuanian chamber orchestra, group of percussionists "Hand voices", the Vilnius Russian folklore ensemble Arinushka and many famous musicians have become permanent partners and performers of premieres. The 2017 festival will also premier a work of a Lithuanian composer, Zita Bružaitė - “Collages”.
