The All-Russian festival of choral music “Songs over the Tsna” is one of the most large-scale events in Tambov region. The “boating” concert followed by the performance of the professional choirs on the stage is a rebirth of minor but incredibly captivating details of Tambov culture life of the beginning of the 20th century. The format of the festival, an open-air concert, is a special feature of the event. It is not just a gala-concert but hours-long musical marathon.
