Since the 2000s, Vale has created opportunities for students to participate in musical formations and develop their talents, in the states of Espírito Santo, Minas Gerais, Pará and Mato Grosso do Sul.
In 2019, a collaborative teaching and learning network was created between the musical projects of the four states and partner orchestras, which received the name Vale Music program.
Vale Music, which is part of the Vale Cultural Institute's authorial programs, includes exchanges between students and teachers from the program's training centers, classes with musicians from professional orchestras sponsored by Vale (Brazilian Symphony Orchestra, Ouro Preto Orchestra and Minas Gerais Philharmonic Orchestra) and artistic residencies.
Vale Music students participate in classes by suit, instrument masterclasses and workshops on orchestra formation and concert music. The program also creates opportunities for young musicians to participate in face-to-face qualifications with the orchestras, in addition to integrated presentations, where they experience the routine of professional musicians.
The classes at Vale Music are divided by vocal range, instrument masterclasses, in addition to workshops on orchestra formation and concert music
The program also creates opportunities for young musicians to participate in face-to-face training with orchestras and in integrated presentations, where they can experience the routine of professional musicians.
Developed by the Amazon Music Foundation (FAM) since 2004, the initiative is aimed at students from the public network of the capital of Pará. It brings together young orchestra, choir, sweet flutes group, young symphonic band, chamber percussion group, violin orchestra and children's choir.
Created in 2000, the initiative promotes musical education actions for students of the public network of Espírito Santo. The program includes an orchestra and a young chamber musician, symphonic band, children's choir and Vale Music youth choir.
Inaugurated in September 2019, the Vale Music center in Brumadinho offers choral singing classes and wind and percussion instruments for students. The classes are taught by the Banda São Sebastião, traditional of the region, with participation also by the Ouro Preto Orchestra.
Founded in 2005, the institution serves children from Corumbá and Ladário, in Mato Grosso do Sul, and from the Bolivian border cities of Puerto Suarez and Puerto Quijarro. The training cycle includes classes of music, dance, languages, school support and heritage education. As a result of this trajectory, the Pantanal Dance Company was created.
Registrations for the projects that integrate the program are open every year. Students from the public school system or scholarship holders from private schools in predetermined regions in each location can register. No prior knowledge of music is required, and the formations are free.
