Nit Europea de la Investigació a la Comunitat Valenciana
The Nit Europea de la Investigació a la Comunitat Valenciana (European Researchers’ Night at the Valencian Community), organized by the City of Arts and Science, is an open science event aiming at making science and the work of scientists familiar to the audience. It consists of a program including different activities happening from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. organized by Ciutat de les Arts i Les Ciències in partnership with Berklee's campus in Valencia, along with other institutions.
The European Researchers' Nights have been organized every September since 2005 and the next European Researchers’ Night will be held in around 340 cities simultaneously across Europe on September 28th, 2018.
On the occasion of the Nit Europea de la Investigació a la Comunitat Valenciana, Berklee's campus in Valencia will present a special edition of its open-air concert series Un Lago de Conciertos.
Un Lago de Conciertos "Musicophilias"
An open-air concert featuring 15 female musicians, students in the Master of Music in Contemporary Performance (Production Concentration), representing a wide range of countries: Spain, Croatia, Peru, Indonesia, South Korea, Cuba, India, and USA. Musicophilias, the name of the show, will present a repertoire dedicated to some of the most famous female scientists in history: Flossie Wong-Staal, Katherine Johnson, Rosalind Franklin, and Jane Goodall.
During the concert, the interactive experiment What Happens to your Brain when you Listen to Music? guided by Eduardo Fernández, director of the Neuroengineering group of the Miguel Hernández University's bioengineering institute will also take place. The activity consists in projecting on a screen, in real time, the brain signals of a Berklee Valencia musician while performing live a musical piece with a cello.
