Dear Folks,
The Kodály Center at Holy Names University is presenting this workshop by visiting Hungarian professor Judit Hartyányi.  I have studied with her, and she is not to be missed!   The workshop takes place July 6-9, 9:00am-12:30pm.
Details are below.  If there is any interest, please contact Anne Laskey at (510) 436-1234 or

Choral Singing in Middle and High School with Judit Hartyányi
In this workshop Judit will share repertoire for use in middle and high school choral settings (SSA, SAB and SATB) and demonstrate how to introduce these materials so that students understand the musical ideas and relationships within each piece.  The creation of joyful, expressive singing and the role of solfège in developing musical hearing, fluent reading and awareness of other parts will be explored through singing and conducting.  Judit is internationally recognized for both her artistry as a musician and her extraordinary warmth as a teacher.
Judit Hartyányi is Associate Professor of Music Education and Choral Conducting at the Liszt Academy in Budapest, Hungary and also conducts Vox Humana, an SATB choir in Vác.  She has served as juror for numerous international choral competitions, and has taught summer courses and workshops in Italy, Slovenia, Ireland, New Zealand, England, the Philippines and the U.S.  Judit is a Vice President of the International Kodály Society, and President of the Artistic Committee of the Hungarian Kodály Society.  She has taught frequently at Holy Names since 1995.  
The workshop may be taken for 1 unit of credit for $245, or audited for $175. To register, or for more information, call Anne Laskey at (510) 436-1234 or email or visit
