Napa Valley Youth Symphony

What They Do:

Bring together talented kids (8-18) from 23 Napa Valley schools to promote a love for music and excellence. Rehearse original works of world composers. Learn teamwork, dedication, and leadership while making new friends. This award winning orchestra performs four concerts annually and provides needs-based scholarships for lessons and tuition to serve all kids in the Valley.

Our mission is to provide young musicians from diverse backgrounds with exciting opportunities for personal and artistic growth. This is done through challenging and inspiring rehearsals and performances in a professional environment, while enhancing our community educationally and artistically.

NVYS rehearses once a week for 3-4 hours, raising the bar in music education while building values in teamwork, perseverance, excellence, and leadership. We offer musicians a team of 15 professional coaches and private, individual lessons to inspire and build technical skills. Twenty-five percent of our musicians receive needs-based tuition and lesson scholarships.

We perform four annual concerts at the Center for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Theater or Napa Valley College, as well as many community events throughout the year.


“Going on the stage to perform after working hard for months to prepare your piece - it’s a wonderful feeling to go up there and show how hard you’ve worked.

~ Makaila Sager, cello, 14 years

Before music I was shy, but with music, it just brings joy to my heart.

~ S.N., flute, 13 years
