Kodaly

Audio will be available later today.

Zoltan Kodaly said that music was "a spiritual food for everybody," but that it's best served to the young. The key is getting kids to love music before they turn 16 — and then they'll love it for the rest of their lives. Michael Stern conducts the Grand Teton Festival Orchestra in Kodaly's Dances of Galanta.
