The symposium, a project of VOICE Vision on Innovation for Choral Music in Europe, focused on different music education approaches that involve singing. Held April 23-27, 2014, in Budapest, Hungary, the symposium gathered music pedagogues, professors of teacher training institutions, conductors, choirs, vocal ensembles and singers from Europe and all over the world who presented and demonstrated how they use various music education methods, including the Kodály concept.
Presentations were organized around the following themes:
- Formal singing-based music education during school years
- Non-formal music learning opportunities after school years
- Benefits of singing in communities on society
- Music teacher and choral conductor training
Videos of each presentation, along with interviews with key symposium participants, can be viewed on the International Symposium on Singing in Music Education YouTube Channel.
