Ima Hogg brings French composer Maurice Ravel to campus for a concert of his choral music. Ravel also speaks on "Contemporary Music," apparently his only public lecture on music. Rice publishes the lecture in the Institute pamphlet series of April 1928. An eventful year for Ravel, he also visits New York, premieres his famous "Bolero" in Paris and receives an honorary doctorate from Oxford University.

The following performances are part of Fondren Library's collection of digitized performances by students and faculty of the Shepherd School of Music. The collection includes selections from the school's concert series and faculty and student recitals.
