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 complementary 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 of the United States.  For a detailed program of events as we get closer to the date, visit

Take a look at our 2014 Summer Institute flyer and 2014 Summer Institute Pre-Registration Form.  We hope to see you in July 2014!
