Acclaimed for their award-winning level of performance, the Napa Valley Youth Symphony is a nationally recognized ensemble of some of the area’s brightest young musicians. The NVYS plays Carnegie Hall next month, but to get there, they’re going to need more than practice. This week, the NVYS holds their Red Gala event to raise funds and send the talented group to New York City. Local winetastings, food and silent auction items start off the evening, followed by a concert featuring all three ensembles in the Youth Symphony. The Red Gala takes place Saturday, May 17, at Lincoln Theater, 100 California Drive, Yountville. 5pm. $25—$50 for concert only; $150 for Red Gala event. 707.226.8742.
