24th International Kodály Symposium 2019

Embracing a New Era: Nurturing the Kodaly Philosophy Around the World

The Kodály Symposium is a bi-annual international event, serving as a platform to educate, engage, support and foster connections for aspiring music educators, ethnomusicologists and musicians internationally. Get ready to be mesmerised by the rich culture of the mystical land of Borneo as we immerse ourselves in this music magic experience.

The official logo: 

The Wing is the wing of the Rhinoceros Hornbill, the state bird of Sarawak and the country’s National Bird.
The Circle symbolises the dawn of a New Era. It also represents the planet Earth where the Kodaly philosophy is loved all around the world.The logo shows the Wing tenderly holding the Circle, which ties to our theme for IKS2019–Embracing a New Era.
This also means that we open our arms and hearts to welcome everyone from around the world to IKS2019 in Sarawak, Malaysia.
