45th Anniversary Celebration – HNU Kodály Center

July 25–26, 2014

Join us in celebrating 45 years of music teacher training during our 2014 Kodály Summer Institute. Those who attend this year’s institute will receive complimentary registration for this 2-day celebration, which is scheduled to coincide with the final days of the institute. HNU faculty and alumni will present sessions and panels that reflect their contributions to the Kodály movement in the U.S. and abroad. A concert by Gilbert deGreeve will raise funds for the IKS Katalin Forrai Early Childhood Award, and we will recognize the first recipient of the scholarship in memory of Rita Klinger. The celebration will conclude with a con­cert by institute participants and alums on the evening of the 26th.

We invite all alums and friends of the Kodály Center, as well as those new to Holy Names, to attend this exciting celebration of one of the most influential Kodály training cen­ters in the United States. For a detailed program of events as we get closer to the date, visit www.hnu.edu/kodaly/blog. The cost is $110, and includes the anniversary dinner on July 25. You may register using the Institute pre-registration form.
