Since 1993 Rachmaninoff's Memorial Days are held every autumn and spring with a wide program of concerts, exhibitions and workshops. Spring Days are devoted to Rachmaninoff's days of birth and death. Rachmaninoff's Autumn Days are confined to the name-day of his mother, L.P. Rachmaninoff, and grandmother S.A. Butakova (30 September - Day of the Holy Martyrs Faith, Hope and Charity and their mother Sophia).
Traditionally, concerts of classical music are given during the Memorial Days and performed by masters of art and talented youth. Different educational activities (movies, lectures, excursions) are organised. In addition, a memorial service is celebrated in St. Sophia Cathedral (Spring Rachmaninov days) and at the grave of L.P. Rachmaninoff (Autumn Rachmaninov days).
