About the festival

On July 1-2 Togliatti will traditionally become the center of attention for those who love high art, as XII Music and Arts Festival Tremolo will take place on the Volga.


The Format of the Festival


XII Music and Arts Festival Tremolo is held annually in Summer. Orchestras, singers and actors of leading Russian and foreign theatres gather in the open air on the bank of the Volga river in the midst of the Zhiguli mountains and pine forests. Due to the absence of a classical concert hall, the audience is absolutely free to move. You can take a walk around the territory, stand by the water, chat with other guests of the festival, or have a snack. Tailcoats and evening dresses are also not required, although the majority of guests prefer evening attire.


Tremolo Mission


The mission of the festival is to promote classical music among people of all ages, nations and ideologies. That is why you will not hear academic pieces which are difficult to perceive and understand, but only accepted, loved classics.
