Welcome to our 81st Toronto Ravel Study!

WE WILL CONTINUE to meet online (ZOOM) into 2021. The study has been discontinued for now – we will continue to have “Adventures in Listening” and a monthly guest.

 

*****************

This Month’s Guest

We are pleased to feature Charles Cozens as this month’s special guest.

Charles Cozens is an acclaimed symphony & theatrical conductor, arranger, composer, orchestrator, pianist, accordionist and record producer with over 100 CDs to his credit. He has his own symphony orchestra (Burlington New Millenium Orchestra) and has guest conducted many of Canada’s leading orchestras. Charles was the first Canadian conductor invited to Cuba to conduct and is a recognized expert in conducting in the recording environment.  Charles has won too many awards and has too many credits to possibly list here.

His impressive bio can be found at http://charlescozens.com/about.html. This is certain to be an inspiring and informative session.

NEW ADVENTURES IN LISTENING – Film clips from “On The Waterfront” and “Ryan” are posted on the “Study Materials” page for download. With the sound removed, they can be scored as an exercise, and brough in to “Adventures in Listening” for feedback and analysis. Adventures in Listening is a unique opportunity to get unbiased and honest feedback on your ‘in-progress’ or experimental work from a community of your professional peers. Because it is anonymous, it is a risk-free environment.  Whether you are an emerging composer or an experienced one, and whether your work is for concert or screen, I encourage you to take advantage of this invaluable resource.

——–
Many of you are actively performing musicians or are composers with TV shows or films containing your original scores. If you would like me to mention upcoming concerts or showtimes, please see me during the first hour, and I will make the announcement during “Adventures in Listening”. This way we can get the word out while preserving the relaxed and casual atmosphere that we have created at Toronto Ravel.

We need your helpWe know that Toronto Ravel is viable, but we need to ensure that it is sustainable. There are 2 ways you can help;  First, by spreading the word to your friends, Facebook friends, colleagues, etc., and by passing around the links to our videos – the links are below. Also – you can volunteer a bit of your time and be part of the Ravel team.  We need people who can assist with publicity and promotion to work with Janal Bechtholt in spreading the word.  Please email info@torontoravel.com if you can lend a hand.
