Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker: Ravel Score Study @ Vitello's Italian Restaurant | Los Angeles | CA | US

Join us as we close out our 2017 season with this holiday edition of our LA Ravel! Featuring special guest Carl Rydlund (Disney, Remote Control, Sony, Dreamworks), we’ll be journeying through the whimsical melodies of Tchaikovsky’s beloved ballet and perennial holiday favorite, The Nutcracker Suite. We’ll look at the history of the piece and dissect the score and learn as much from Tchaikovsky’s techniques as we can!
