SCA presents Seattle Ravel Study: Daphnis et Chloe, Suites 1 & 2 (Second Meeting)

November 19, 2014 @ 7:00 pm9:00 pm

Join us Wednesday, November 19th from 7pm to 9pm at the Seattle Film Institute in the theater, where we’ll continue our group study of Daphnis and Chloe, Suites 1 and 2, in this second of a series of meetings. Long held by critics as Ravel’s “masterpiece for orchestra,” we will explore what makes a great orchestration, and how we can make our own music better. Also, look for a copy of the study materials created by Ron Jones (link below) for some suggestions on diving deeper into this work, or others, on your own.
