A few words about starting a Symphony Orchestra

Last night we had our final rehearsal with Valencia Film Orchestra. So far it has been an amazing journey, and we are really excited about our concert in the Palau de la Música this Saturday, April 30th.

Putting together a group of 66 amazingly talented musicians has been the hardest challenge of our lives. We have gone through months of hard work, planning and preparation. Thousands of emails and phone calls later, we were able to successfully have our first rehearsal two weeks ago. Everybody was super excited to share beautiful music with fellow musicians from up to 13 countries.

Valencia Film Orchestra 2

Introducing the Valencia Film Orchestra

Valencia Film Orchestra is the result of a dream. A dream shared by Fernando Furones (principal conductor) and Elaine Lizardo (artistic director), both Film Scoring students at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Together, they have devoted themselves to this project ever since they arrived in Valencia last January.

After reaching out to as many people as possible, they succeeded in creating the first soundtrack orchestra based in Valencia. They got the support from Berklee’s campus in Valencia and Fundación FUVANE, a charity focused on providing help to children with mental paralysis.

Interview with Nitish Kulkarni and Enrique Ponce, Performers at Innovation: En Vivo! Spring 2016

Interview with Nitish Kulkarni

Nitish, how would you describe your music?
I create instrumental music that is a blend of acoustic and electronic sounds. I use instruments from around the globe and blend them together in a contemporary setting. The result is a dynamic style of music that is highly accessible and leaves the interpretation open to the listener’s imagination. There are no words in my music. I use human voices from time to time, usually to create a specific effects, but only as another instrument.

By Grace Mann

A garden in Valencia, SpainThe opportunity to live in a foreign country doesn’t present itself too often. Musicians may tour, families may travel, but these experiences provide mere glimpses of a culture. Living in Valencia for an entire semester granted me the time to explore.

Valentina López, Undergraduate Student at Berklee’s Campus in Valencia, on Performing at Innovation ¡En Vivo! – Fall’s Edition

With Innovation ¡En Vivo! just a day way, here’s a sneak peek into the life of amazingly talented Valentina López:

My name is Valentina López, and I’m a 21 year old Ecuadorian singer-song writer. I started my music career at the age of 17 and since then I’ve had the great honor to open for Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Melendi and Big Time Rush back in Ecuador! I also had the opportunity to be nominated and win a few awards in Ecuador. My major at Berklee is Music Production and Engineering, and at the moment I’m a study abroad student at the Valencia Campus. For this Innovation ¡En Vivo! I will be performing a song called “La Negra Tiene Tumbao” by Celia Cruz (a Latin American music idol) featuring my Berklee Valencia band. I hope to stay in touch and see you tomorrow night if you’re in Valencia!
