Berklee Week

We reach the end of the academic year with “Berklee Week”, a musical celebration with students from Berklee’s campus in Valencia happening from July 2 to July 7. Berklee on the Big Screen. A Première As part of the Berklee Week, the Hemisfèric will present two special sessions showcasing the final projects of students in the Scoring for Film, Television, and Video Games graduate program. After recording these final compositions with an orchestra of a professional studio at AIR studios in London, one of the best studios in the world, you’ll know them scoop combined with short films and animations on the giant screen of the Hemisfèric. La Nit de Berklee Our commencement concert “La Nit de Berklee”  is the culmination of a year of work and learning, the concert where our graduate students showcase their talent merging styles from around the world creating a very special and multisensory experience, a colour and music explosion which takes place on a floating stage at the north lake of the Hemisfèric. In 2017, La Nit de Berklee gathered 5.000 attendees and this year, it welcomes once again all people from Valencia and from all over the world who will be visiting the city on the most important date for the Valencia campus in 2018. Exhibition ‘Contrapunto’ As a fair-exhibit, an installation designed by Berklee Valencia Multimedia Installation Ensemble (led by Professor F. Pierce Warnecke), a group of students in the Music Production, Technology, and Innovation master’s degree program, will be displayed. Students from this graduate program have spent a whole year generating innovative ideas for the future of music. In collaboration with the City of Arts and Sciences, Berklee is transformed into an interactive showcase to share their work with all Valencia. The project is a new collaboration between Berklee Valencia and Valencian sculptor Rafael Amoros. The installation will feature three large-scale pieces custom built by Amoros and projection mapped by the Ensemble. Students will create original music and video content inspired by these sculptures, in keeping with themes of minimalism and Mediterranean. Through this exciting collaboration, the undulating works of an acclaimed sculptor will take on a new dimension through sound and moving image.

The Indo Flamenco Concert

The Indo Flamenco Concert is a fusion of Indian Classical and Flamenco music. The concept of this concert is to gate at the Spanish roots of flamenco that come from the western part of India called “Rajasthan”. The Romani population (gypsies) emigrated and settled in Spain after having traveled throughout the Iberian peninsula, gathering vibrant influences from different cultures. Spain’s exuberant and omnipotent joy shows a great resemblance to the contagious joy impregnated in the Indian dance, as well as in the “Kathak” dance style of northern India. An evening of entertainment and exploration of the areas of music and dance where these two cultures collide. The Indo Flamenco Concert is a charity concert. All the funds raised will go to Vicente Ferrer Foundation and Fuvane Foundation. Featuring artists:
  • Dhaval Kothari – Voice
  • Ragini Makkhar (India’s Got Talent Winner) – Dance
  • Analuisa Cardona – Flamenco dance
  • Hemant Makkhar – Tabla (Indian percussion)
  • Reina Roja (Valencia, Spain) – Flamenco Band
  • José “El Piru” – Flamenco guitar
  • Peter Connolly – Electric guitar
  • Chris Attwell – Electric bass

DIY Musician Conference Europe 2018

After hosting many successful DIY Musician Conferences in the United States, CD Baby is proud to announce the first ever DIY Musician Conference in Europe in partnership with Berklee’s campus in Valencia.

This event will take place on April 14 and April 15, 2018, at Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía and at Berklee’s campus in Valencia.
