Thank you to our volunteers, we appreciate your help!

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!

Announcing Our New Home at NVC!

We are excited to announce our new partnership with Napa Valley College. Starting with our 2022-23 season this fall we will be moving to Napa Valley College for all rehearsals and performances. This partnership will provide NVYS with a beautiful musical home and an increased visibility in the larger Napa community, Our students 16 and over will receive free college credit for participating in youth symphony and an opportunity to take other music courses at NVC for credit and for no charge. We will also be collaborating with the NVC Choir. More information to come!

Mask Mandate Modified and COVID Testing Prior to Rehearsal

We are aware that the State has lifted the indoor mask mandate and so have schools. For the time being, NVYS will keep our mask mandate in place. This will be revisited for our 2022-23 season. 

Thank you to everyone for testing prior to rehearsal and staying home if you had symptoms or tested positive
. If you tested positive last week, we are asking you to provide a negative test result within 72 hours of our next rehearsal. 
We are not making testing mandatory, but we require students and staff who are experiencing Covid symptoms to stay home and test prior to the next rehearsal. 

Thank you so much for your commitment to NVYS and keeping our community safe and healthy.
