|Email item||Print item||
Bedstone International Summer Youth Orchestra Camp (BISYOC) is a charity which offers an 11 day intercultural youth symphony orchestra exchange for young musicians. This summer project in Malta offers chamber music and workshops. Participants return year after year because they enjoy the whole experience of BISYOC.
Its Musical Director is Julian Gibbons whose countless contacts with young musicians across Europe inspired him to start this unique project in 2001. The enthusiasm and input from all involved have created an unforgettable and very special experience which has grown into a world wide community.
