Percussion faculty Marko Djordjevic will give a clinic/performance discussing improvisation and group interaction. Djordjevic's performance credits include Matt Garrison, Lionel Loueke, Jonah Smith, Clarence Spady, the Mason Brothers, Eric Lewis, Ole Mathisen, Michael Henderson, and many others. Djordjevic also leads and writes music for his own group, Sveti.
In a chapter dedicated to him in the recently published book, The New Face Of Jazz (author Cicily Janus, Random House, Inc.), it is said that "Marko's name is quickly becoming synonymous with greatness and diversity." Modern Drummer magazine dubs him a "world class drummer" and a "true innovator." Djordjevic will be joined by star students Justin Salisbury on piano and Petar Krstajic on bass. Natal Drums, Vic Firth, Evans, and Zildjian are supporting Marko's appearance at Percussion Days 2107.

The musical program features an all-star lineup including Peter Eldridge, Rebecca Shrimpton, Lisa Thorson, Andrea Capozzoli, Maggie Scott, Ana Guigui, David Scott, Larry Baione, Tony Germain, Patrice Williamson, Jan Shapiro, Rene Pfister, Tim Ray, Doug Johnson, Dave Clark, and Yoron Israel. Light refreshments will be provided.
Please note that due to the serving of alcoholic beverages, the college strictly prohibits student attendance at this event.
Join BerkleeICE for a special screening of Elvis Presley's '68 Comeback Special, the network broadcast TV special that marked a comeback in Elvis's career. The film includes live-recorded segments of Elvis spontaneously jamming in the studio with his band on classic blues and rock 'n' roll songs, as well as performances by the leather-clad Elvis of his top hits. These sessions showcased Elvis's raw talent, and would come to influence and inspire MTV's unplugged concerts.
Peter Guralnick, Elvis biographer and one of America's leading cultural historians, will speak with BerkleeICE's Panos Panay on the life and legacy of Elvis Presley. Guralnick has won Grammys for his liner notes and documentaries, and been inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame for his work chronicling Elvis and the history of America's intertwined black and white musical traditions.
Panay and Guralnick will discuss how Elvis' style and image have transcended trends, and how his iconic brand continues to inspire musicians, social influencers, and entrepreneurs.
David Raccuglia, founder of American Crew and renowned photographer of cultural icons including Yoko Ono and Ray Charles, will speak with students on the iconic style of Elvis Presley. Raccuglia will also advise students on building their own style as artists, and how they can curate their image to create a recognizable brand.
Marc Rosen, senior vice president of business development at Elvis Presley Enterprises, will speak with BerkleeICE's Panos Panay on the persistence and impact of Elvis's image on brands today. They will also discuss the process through which an artist's image is licensed across apparel, video games, movies, and more.

The Student Affairs / Diversity and Inclusion Office invites all students, staff and faculty at the Valencia Campus to join the #BeBoldForChange campaign launched this year to conmemorate International Women's Day over a picnic at the riverbed!
Within the context of March as "Women's History Month", International Women's Day (March 8) marks a global day that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. March 8 also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity... And that's what we are planning to do! During our picnic, we'll share our own individual personal and professional experiences and we'll also agree on a specific set of commitments that we can make as a community to make our immediate environment a more equal one.
The Valencia Campus is fully commited to the efforts of promoting gender equality within and beyond the music industry. This picnic is another opportunity to start thinking about what this means to you as an individual and how you plan to join and commit to these efforts!
We'll meet at Front Desk at 1.30PM to walk together to our secret picnic location... We hope you can join us!
