What They Do:

Provide a musical home for budding musicians 8-18 years old from 27 Napa Valley schools. Bring together a diverse group of students with inspiring directors and professional coaches to produce high-caliber performances of classical music by the great composers. Develop creativity, discipline, and leadership skills that serve Napa students and the community.

Napa Valley Youth Symphony also offers local youth private music lessons, summer chamber music camp, master classes, and opportunities to play Carnegie Hall, St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin, and the great concert halls of England and Eastern Europe. The NVYS and the Napa Youth Chamber Ensemble play no fewer than 15 concerts throughout the community annually, for charitable causes and events such as Festival Napa Valley and BottleRock.


Music brings people together, and I have the NVYS to thank for that. These people share my struggles in learning our repertoire, but our concerts give us a great sense of accomplishment and thrill. It just goes to show that anything can be done given a little practice.
