Ravel Study Group is an informal monthly gathering of composers and musicians interested in studying scores from great composers past and present. The first hour is score study, followed by a presentation by a guest composer. Stick around after for a drink!

For December 16th, we will be looking at Ravel's "Daphnis and Chloe Orchestral Suites #1 and #2." We will be using the Dover edition (make sure to avoid buying the full ballet score). It is available online - limited copies are in stock at the Juilliard Bookstore as well. The guest composer will be Ned Paul Ginsburg.
