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.

DISCOVER-i: Crossroads

Come join us at DISCOVER-i: Crossroads on Wednesday, November 29 at Sala Russafa! Entrance is free and on a first-come-first-serve basis; no tickets are required!

DISCOVER, the concert series that lets you uncover the best new performing talent at Berklee, and Innovation: En Vivo!, the concert series that allows you to experience the future of music now, have come together to bring you the new DISCOVER-i concert series.

DISCOVER-i is based on the collaboration between students from our four graduate programs; Contemporary Performance (Production Concentration); Music Production, Technology, and Innovation; Music Business and Global Entertainment; and Scoring for Film, Television, and Video Games, as well as the undergraduate community from the First Year Abroad and Berklee Study Abroad programs.

DISCOVER-i features outstanding performers with innovative techniques and creative presentations, always with the highest production standards, to bring you the most moving and memorable musical experiences. Because our students have a wide range of specialties and stylistic backgrounds, a DISCOVER-i concert evening can be very diverse. Concerts can be expected to include the highest level of musical, visual and production quality, including but not limited to solo acts to large group, electronically based compositions, video mapping, live DJs, audio/visual installations, acoustic/electric collaborations, and nearly every part of the show includes some form of visuals/projection.

DISCOVER-i concerts will be based on a theme, and students will be encouraged to submit applications which reflect that theme. The first concert this year is DISCOVER-i: Crossroads. Featured groups will be student-led bands, chosen by a committee through an application and audition process.
