The organ complex in the Cathedral is a unique phenomenon for Russia. It is formed by a small choir and a three-storey large organ weighing 35 tons. 8525 pipes in 122 registers. Vibrations from infra- to ultrasound. If you have not yet thought about the organ as "the greatest instrument created by human genius", after getting acquainted with the Cathedral, you will definitely understand everything.

The project is implemented by the winner of the "Common Cause" competition of the "Effective Philanthropy" charity program of the Vladimir Potanin Charitable Foundation.
