Equity, Diversity and Inclusion



Napa Valley Youth Symphony is committed to creating an organization that values diversity, equity and inclusion and offers unlimited full tuition and lesson scholarships. Cost should never be a barrier to participation.



Our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion committee is 15 people strong representing parents, staff, and musicians, as well as diverse in age, race, ethnicity, and gender. In our second meeting we talked about importance of making NVYS a musical home where everyone feels a sense of belonging. Our next meeting will be August 14th at 3 pm at NVC. 

We began our work with Scansion Consulting who engaged a small group of staff, musicians and board members in a EDI feedback session. Next step is an organizational survey asking for your insight into how NVYS approaches Equity, Diversity and Inclusion. Look for a survey in your in-box this summer! 

Thank you to the League of American Orchestra's for our 3-year Catalyst Grant which support our EDI work. More to come!
