We cordially invite here representatives of various performing schools, young musicians, composers, world leaders in bayan and accordion manufacturing, teachers, and all admirers of our instruments.

Is that all we can offer? Far from it! Another part of our Festival is an academic conference targeted to provide a channel for exchange of information between researchers of not only bayan and accordion music but also wider issues of History of Art and Cultural studies. Our guests are warmly invited to attend specialized exhibitions, displays and presentations carefully prepared by BGIIK and our partners.
