Napa Valley Youth Symphony

What We Do:

Provide a rich musical education for more than 80 young musicians. Our students receive coaching from professional musicians and exciting and unique opportunities to play original scores of musical greats from Mozart to Gershwin, with a dash of Queen, Brubeck, and Sondheim thrown in for fun. Opportunities to tour abroad.

Since our inception in 2003, NVYS has developed young musicians (8 – 18 years old) in our four ensembles. Weekly rehearsals feature small group coaching by professional musicians. Our work with students goes far beyond music education, as we engage our students in leadership development, team building, and striving for excellence. Our advanced orchestra tours biennially (New York, Boston, Ireland, UK, Austria, Czech Republic). Students play in the great halls of the US and abroad while broadening their understanding of culture. Donations support tuition/lesson scholarships for students in need and our annual retreat to Camp Cazadero Music Camp.


Other Ways to Help:

Volunteer opportunities:

  • Help at a NVYS concert at the Lincoln Theater and attend the concert for free.
  • Attend a NVYS concert to support and encourage our young musicians. You will be dazzled!
  • Volunteer your services as a graphic designer or social media coordinator.

Donations needed:

  • Donate auction items (wine, massage gift certificates, special experiences) or sponsor our Red Gala annual fundraiser.

Testimonial:

NVYS and music have taught me that taking things slow, note by note, and by being persistent I can do anything I want to.

~ Christina Cho, Former NVYS concertmaster, current senior at Bates College, Maine
