Past Events

MUSIC+SPOKEN WORD

Music is often thought of as a means to express oneself when words cannot. VCE aims to  join the two in its latest installment in its MUSIC+ series; MUSIC+SPOKEN WORD. The program is filled with pieces exploring the relationship between words and music combining pieces that are new and old, soft and loud, pleasant and confrontational – reflecting our own experiences of speaking and listening.

Behind the Music: Star Wars

We took a trip to a galaxy far, far away and examined the music that inspired one of the most famous movie soundtracks in the history of the galaxy, Star Wars. With pieces by Hindemith, Ligeti, and Tchaikovsky, we learned how John Williams used creative theme development while composing his score.

Summer Music

On September 10th, 2016, we rocked out chamber music style! At Summer Music, we performed songs from the movie “Viva Las Vegas” and “Dead Elvis”, piece for chamber music and solo bassoon.

Water

Water, one of the most important resources on the planet, serves as a life-giving entity as well as the inspiration to countless works of art. Artists from all disciplines draw upon its beauty, both calming and tumultuous. In our next installment, Valley Chamber Ensembles’ WATER will explore the many ways water influences us and also our impact on it.

TECHNICHAMBER

Technichamber focused on the illuminating experience that happens when we fuse the mediums of music and film.  Combining the enigma of YouTube with original works written for Valley Chamber Ensembles, we utilized popular culture with the ingenuity of several composers to present a one-of-a-kind experience to our audience members.

Night Music

On June 3rd, 2016, we hosted our second event, Night Music. We invited our guests to bring a blanket, lay out on our lawn, and enjoy an evening of stargazing and chamber music.

MUSIC+MOVEMENT

Valley Chamber Ensembles explored the definition of what movement means within the realm of music in MUSIC+MOVEMENT. Music and movement have always been intrinsically linked, and by combining music and dance and the movement of sound, we took a closer look at this age-old relationship between these two art forms.

Black Tie @ Das Bauhaus

We got Faux Fancy at our fourth event; Black Tie @ Das Bauhaus! We raised funds for our 2017 programing and enjoyed a new way to get classy.

Music+Art

Our premier event, MUSIC+ART, featured a performance of Terry Riley’s minimalist piece In C.  In conjunction with our vision to collaborate with other art forms, several artists were positioned around the stage, drawing inspiration to create works of art from the sounds of the music.  This event took place on March 13th, 2016.
