The BKA’s flagship residential course is running for its 35th year with an exciting 10-day programme to honour the 50th anniversary of the death of Zoltán Kodály and to celebrate 50 years of the Kodály approach in the UK.

We are pleased to welcome a truly international team of renowned tutors from Hungary (Dr. László Nemes, Dr. Árpád Tóth, Sarolta Platthy, Orsolya Szabó, Borbála Szirányi), the USA (Dr Susan Brumfield), the Netherlands (Gerard Klaassens), France (Allan Wright, Florent Isoard) and the UK (Cyrilla Rowsell, Esther Hargittai, Miranda Zwalf, Alan Murdock, Holger Aston).

Mixed and Female Choirs will have the opportunity to rehearse extended choral works: suggestions so far include works by Bach, Haydn, Carissimi and Tóth. There are also plans to run a Chamber Choir and a Foundation Choir.

As ever, musicianship will be at the core of the daily programme with the addition of Musicianship in Choir. For general course students, methodology workshops will be led by Borbála Szirányi, Gerard Klaassens and Susan Brumfield with the option of choral music workshops directed by Árpád Tóth and Esther Hargittai.

Guest afternoon workshop leaders include Steve Roud (folk music), Jacqueline Vann (Dalcroze), Claire McCue (Mindful Movement), Sue Hollingworth and Ken Burton.

As part of our programme of evening events, we have invited folk singer and song collector, Sam Lee, and The London Adventist Chorale, directed by Ken Burton. There will be dance workshops with Nicola Gaines (Playford dance) and Laurel Swift (Morris dance) and we are delighted to welcome Ralph Allwood who will lead a session on Elgar’s part-songs.

Alongside the general course, for those who would like accredited certification as teachers using the Kodály approach, we will be running the Certificate Course, Level 1 (Early Childhood, Primary, Secondary, Instrumental) and an inaugural Level 2 (Primary) course which will be taught by Borbála Szirányi.
