Napa Valley Youth Symphony

Napa Valley Youth Symphony

What We Do:

We offer life-changing musical education to 80+ Napa youth 8-18 years old, including the opportunity to play with professional guest artists, train with coaches, perform on big stages, learn the works of the classical masters, play rock-n-roll at BottleRock, and perform in the great halls of Europe.

NVYS provides young musicians from diverse backgrounds with exciting opportunities for personal and artistic growth through challenging and inspiring rehearsal and performances in a professional environment. All while enhancing our community, educationally and artistically.

We offer kids unique opportunities such as performing at the Lincoln Theater and at BottleRock, touring Eastern Europe, and having private lessons, professional coaching, and master classes. We believe we change lives and inspire youth through music. Cost is never a barrier to participation. NVYS is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion by offering unlimited tuition and lesson scholarships.

Other Ways to Help:

  • Audio or video services to stream our concerts online
  • Gift cards for incentive rewards for practice-a-thons and talent shows
  • Volunteer to work at concerts once we are practicing in-person again


NVYS has renewed my love for music … giving me an amazing chance to play with some of the best musicians in the area, learn from them, and make new friends.
