Welcome to the website of the Kodály Society of Ontario!
Making music is an essential component of a child’s life. One has only to reflect on past music classes, concerts, assemblies and impromptu singing sessions to be reminded of the delight, emotional satisfaction and the pure pleasure children derive from joyous music making. As teachers of music, it is our mission to provide our students with many opportunities for engagement in quality music experiences. A favourite song of Kodály movement around the world is Harmonia Mundi (We Gather Here Together). It is often sung to conclude workshops, conferences and symposia, where all participants join hands and voices to experience the power of group music making. The words are as follows:
We Gather Here Together
We gather here together with joyful hearts and mind
We raise our voices ever, our distant souls to bind.
To remember in this moment of friendship, love and joy,
That music made together with one day heal mankind.
We invite you into the joyful music making community that is the Kodály Society of Ontario.
