2017-18 Past Concerts

NVYS fall Concert

Sunday, December 3
Napa Valley College Performing Arts Center

2277 College Way, Napa

The Napa Valley Youth Symphony presents Memories of the Past, a collection of works that examine our relationship to history. Commissioned to accompany a play, Beethoven's Coriolan Overture evokes the glory of the Roman Empire and the humanity of a general who sought military resolution of his political failures. Soon Hee Newbold's Egyptian Legacy is a contemporary work that similarly evokes the ancient world, but south of the Mediterranean. Respighi's Ancient Dances and Aires provides a 20th century perspective on Renaissance dance music and ending the evening, a selection of Elgar's Enigma Variations imagines the character's in the British Composers life interpreting a theme in their own idiosyncratic way. This concert presents a perspective on recollection as reinterpretation and offers music both well-known and freshly drawn to show that the act of re-creation is an act of creation.

NVYS & Sinfonia Winter Concerto Concert

Featuring the 2017 NVYS Concerto Competition Winners Juliana Tran (Viola) and Zia Calpito (Bass)
Sunday, February 11, 4 pm
Napa Valley Center for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Theater

Napa Valley Youth Symphony presents a concert celebrating music education in the Wine Country.

Bach, and Zia Calpito on Capuzzi's Concerto in F Major for Double Bass. Two training orchestras—The Preparatory Orchestra of the Santa Rosa Symphony and Sinfonia from the Napa Valley Youth Symphony, will present Russian Sailor's Dance from the Red Poppy and Handel's La Rejouissance from Royal Fireworks Music. NVYS will conclude with Franz Schubert's Sixth Symphony, a work turning 200 years old but still as fresh as the day the 21-year-old Schubert put pen to paper.
