BISYOC Intercultural Youth Orchestral Exchange 24th July-5th August 2019
WHAT IS BISYOC?
We create an international youth orchestra of 80 players every summer for 12 days. Players come from all over the world (20 countries participated last time). We’ve been doing this for the past 18 years – and in many different locations: Norway, Austria, Spain, Germany, Malta and the United Kingdom. This year it’s in Struga, a multicultural town with a perfect summer climate, on the shore of Lake Ohrid (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
WHAT WILL I DO THERE?
You’ll rehearse the music daily, for most of the day, and perform concerts. Music-making is what it’s all about. You’ll get expert input from our international team of professional musicians (specialist tutors for every instrumental section). But what really makes BISYOC unique is the mix of people. Opportunities for cultural interaction are immense, so plenty of time is dedicated to that too. Everybody who comes to BISYOC wants to meet others who share their passion about playing music and meeting new people.
