VALE Music Group

Student Owned. Student Run.

With a well-respected music program backing VALE, the group is an exciting place for aspiring musicians and industry hopefuls. Students involved come from all majors–within and outside of the music department. VALE is compromised of four different branches that help students build entrepreneurial skills: VALE Records, VALE Conference, VALE Live, and VALE Publishing.

The group signs on student artists for their label and help young artists produce, publish and promote their music and brand. Those involved in VALE have the chance to work on every aspect involved in music business, including the recruitment of potential artists, studio recording, and hosting live performances. These are very unique opportunities at the undergraduate level, and provide LVC students with early experiences in this competitive industry.
