Tickets available at KAM’s website
The Asia Kodaly Symposium (AKS) is a biennial event presented by the Kodaly Academy of Music (Singapore) (KAM) in collaboration with the Kodaly Institute of the Liszt Academy of Music (Hungary). The symposium sees a panel of world class international educators and conductors coming together to share their experience and expertise in lively hands-on workshops and presentations that will empower musician-educators in their daily work. Music professionals ranging from conductors, instrumental teachers in private studios, music classroom teachers to music students have attended the AKS.
AKS aims to inspire, promote and bring about better understanding of the arts and culture to the masses through the Kodaly Concept – a comprehensive system that is still evolving today, encompassing music philosophy and sophisticated teaching techniques that are applicable to amateurs and professionals alike. The AKS has traditionally been a platform that celebrates the diversity of arts and culture through concerts by both emerging and established artists. It is also hoped that AKS can provide opportunities for learning, understanding and collaboration between composers, artists, sponsors in spearheading and pioneering arts in a sustainable manner.
This year, the Asia Kodály Symposium 2020 (AKS 2020) will be held in Singapore!
