Ravos Quartet1.24.18 — New England Conservatory’s (NEC) Ravos Quartet will hold a performance and “open” rehearsal on Thursday, February 1, 2018, from 6:00 to 7:00 pm, at Northeastern University School of Law. Comprised of current NEC students, the Ravos Quartet performs celebrated works of the classical string quartet repertoire and champions music by living composers; its performance at Northeastern has been orchestrated by the Community Performances and Partnerships Department at NEC. The rehearsal will be followed by a conversation and Q&A, providing the audience with an inside glimpse of how the members rehearse, discuss musical ideas and negotiate conflict within a string quartet.

“Our law school’s commons area should be a ‘commons, in the broadest sense, where diverse people and ideas meet,” said Professor Martha Davis, who arranged for the performance. And lawyers have a lot to learn from how musicians listen intently and negotiate differences.

Hailing from four countries across the world, the members of the Ravos Quartet first met at the Ravinia Steans Institute and Taos School of Music and then officially came together in the fall of 2016 at the New England Conservatory (NEC). Within the first few months of their formation, they garnered attention as an NEC Honors Ensemble. Members of the Ravos Quartet have been featured on NPR’s From the Top, at the Fischoff and Primrose Competitions, and have studied at the Curtis Institute, the Colburn School, the Central Conservatory in Beijing and Harvard University. The name “Ravos” is derived from a combination of Ravinia and Taos, and it also carries the meaning “to delight” or “to enchant.” The ensemble seeks to perform works that not only delight audiences, but also showcase the group’s whimsical personality.

This event will be held in the lower-level commons in Dockser Hall at 65 Forsyth Street, Boston. It is free and open to the public.
