As part of Spring Music Week, Valencia College will host the Master Music Series starting Feb. 28 and running through March 3.
All concerts will be held in the Performing Arts Center at Valencia’s East Campus, located at 701 N. Econlockhatchee Trail.
The music series will kick off on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 1 p.m., when music faculty and staff will perform a recital. The recital will include both solo pieces and ensembles.
The series continues March 1 at 7:30 p.m., when Nahre Sol, pianist and composer, performs a diverse mixture of music. Sol is best known for her YouTube channel, with more than 540,000 subscribers, and for being co-host of the PBS Digital Studios show “Sound Field.” Sol has performed across the world and on stages in France, Germany, Italy and more. During the performance, she will compose and teach music that draw from aspects of improvisation, traditional Western forms, jazz and harmony.
The series will conclude on March 2 at 7:30 p.m., when the Sam Rivers Rejuvenation Orchestra performs. The orchestra is dedicated to keeping Sam Rivers’ music alive. Rivers, who moved to Orlando in the 1990s, played with Miles Davis in the ’60s, essentially created the New York loft-jazz scene in the ’70s, and made compelling music for 30 more years. The Valencia performance will feature some of his musical techniques like music phrases, a myriad of scribbles and sudden turns.
