Toronto Ravel Reset  Toronto Ravel has come a long way in almost 5 years of meeting.  We have studied scores by Maurice Ravel, John Williams, Aaron Copland and Don Davis. We have had dozens of fascinating guests.

But we are at a crossroads.

It’s time to chart the next chapter of this cool idea that is Toronto Ravel. It’s time to reach out to new participants. Time to get more people involved – not only with guest ideas and MIDI programming, but with the study itself. Time to rekindle the enthusiasm and excitement that was in the room at our first meeting on October 24, 2013.

Time to make sure that Toronto Ravel has a good long life ahead of it.

Please join us.  Please join the discussion.
We return to our roots in January with a one-off look at the opening of the original ballet score for Daphnis and Chloë, our signature study score.

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.
