With the graduation ceremony of the BA and MA students of the Institute on 21 June the 2013-2014 academic year of the Kodály Institute is officially closed. They received their degrees in Budapest, in the concert hall of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music, together with all other graduates of the Academy.
Leading up to the ceremony, there were memorable moments that both students and workers of the Institute will recall fondly.
The Kodály Institute of the Liszt University of Music organizes a Kodály Seminar at the Hungarian Academy in Romefrom 4 September till 7 September, 2014.
Address: Accademia d'Ungheria In Roma, Via Giulia 1. 00186 Roma
For whom do we recommend the Kodály Seminar in Rome? - for music teachers, choral conductors, and other professional musicians, interested in the Hungarian music culture and in the international achievement of our music pedagogy
The St Catharine's Girls' Choir - the only college-based girls' choir in the UK - was founded in 2008. The choir sings weekly in the College Chapel, as well as giving regular concerts and its repertoire extends from the early Middle Ages to the 21st century, with several works written specially for it. Their conductor is Edward Wickham.
Like many local institutions, the Kodály Institute participated in the events of the 29th Kecskemét Spring Festival. On 19 March visitors heard compositions by Franz Liszt, Béla Bartók and Zoltán Kodály in the concert hall of the Institute.
On 13 March we celebrated two colleagues in the Concert Hall of the Kodály Institute. First we said farewell to the retiring Albert Pálinkás, studio technician of the Institute, who is also the maker and editor of many video recordings, different publications and leaflets; a truly versatile worker. Then Katalin Hartyáni Szarka, financial administrator, was commemorated on her 25th year of work for the Institute.
Every year the Institute organises a week-long programme in February or March, when instead of the regular lessons, students have the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of special lectures, workshops and other activities that do not fit into the regular timetable.
