The New Orleans Ravel Study Group meets the first Friday of each month at Material Institute to talk about music and orchestration beginning with Ravel’s “Daphnis et Chloe” suites.
Knowing that most composers spend an unhealthy amount of time isolated in the studio, Ron Jones (Family Guy, Star Trek, Mission: Impossible) originally started the group as a way to bring people together face-to-face to share ideas and experience the benefits of sunlight. Ron will join us as the first guest speaker.
Ravel study groups can be found in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Seattle, Tokyo, Toronto, and now New Orleans.
It is as much a place for anyone interested in music to discover and learn as it is an academic study – to get together with like-minded people for the love of the music.
Meetings are free to attend. You will need a copy of the Ravel score. Feel free to bring your own composition for feedback. More information here.
