For years now, every February the British Kodály Academy has arranged a three- or five-day long study tour to the Kodály Institute. Due to the increased number of participants as compared to previous years, the length of the course has been expanded from three days to a week and was held partly in Budapest, partly in Kecskemét between 17-21 February.
The government of Hungary has created several new scholarship opportunities (Stipendium Hungaricum) for those interested in pursuing graduate or postgraduate studies in Hungary including the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music and the Kodály Institute.
Between 13 and 17 January the Institute hosted two different groups of visitors. A smaller group of teachers from the Korean Kodály Society observed lessons in the local Kodály School, also attending lectures on methodology and Kodály’s lifework at the Kodály Institute.
The Christmas season events of the Kodály Institute were started by the charity concert of the New Liszt Ferenc Chamber Choir (conductor: Péter Erdei, Liszt Prize awardee, merited artist) on 1 December, Advent Sunday in the Concert Hall of the Calvinist College in Kecskemét.
The students of the Institute organised this year’s International Evening on 30 November. The programme was much more interactive than in the previous years, with (just to name a few activities) Australian Aborigine-style painting, origami, poems, short dramatic scenes and a Canadian quiz game included among the usual, quality folk music performances and folk dance teachings.
