NVYS Fall Concert
Monday, November 15, 7:30 pm @ performing arts Center at Napa Valley College

Napa Valley Youth Symphony Presents Music from the new World

Very often classical music has been criticized for reflecting European culture exclusively. This season our musicians and community have the opportunity to experience music that from the Americas. This first NVYS concert of our 2021-22 season brings music of Latin American composers that represent the American continent in colonial times.

Starting with Carlos Gomes the first composer from the New World and first Black composer to perform at La Scala do Milano during its most prestigious days; the concert also features music of the Mexican composer Arturo Marquez and Brazilian composer Villa-Lobos bringing a diversity of culture and rhythms.
This concert season opener marks an exciting turning point for NVYS and it's new Artistic Director, Brazilian Alan Anibal Souza Ramos, who will continue to share a diverse repertoire that reflects the diversity of our orchestra, our community and our country.

Like you, NVYS went virtual in March 2020, diligently rehearsing and performing via zoom. In August our musicians began rehearsing a diverse and dynamic repertoire in 13 small ensembles which culminated in our fall concert.

This past January, we had each NVYS household adopt JackTrip audio technology which allowed us to rehearse simultaneously - in real time - in large groups! We were excited to use JackTrip technology to record our hopefully final online performance which premieres May 22, featuring our Concerto winners.

Zoom, JackTrip, headphones, microphones...it's been fun (and very challenging!) but we look forward to playing in-person for rehearsals and performances this fall.
