Seattle Ravel Study

July 8, 2014 @ 7:00 pm9:00 pm

The Seattle Composers Alliance presents

Seattle Ravel Study

Inspired by Ron Jones’ Ravel Study in L.A., we are proud to present a new chapter of the study group here in the Northwest.  Join us July 8th from 7pm to 9pm at the Seattle Film Institute in the theater, where we’ll dive deep into the analysis of Daphnis and Chloe, Suites 1 and 2, in this first 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.

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

When: July 8th – 7pm to 9pm

Where: Seattle Film Institute, 3210 16th Ave W

Everyone is welcome to attend!  There are no requirements, no home work, other than bring your curiosity and enthusiasm for great music.  If you do wish to roll up your sleeves and dig in with us, you can purchase a copy of the Suites 1 and 2 and the CD.  We will be using specific materials, so check out the information below on the versions we are using.

Also, you are welcome to download the extra materials provided by Ron with some tips on how to better explore the score on your own. Please let your friends know, too.
