“By and large, jazz has
always been like
the kind of a man you
wouldn’t want your
daughter to associate with.”
Duke Ellington

A non-profit organization, NVJS supports the art of jazz in the Valley through events, education and community outreach, in collaboration with arts organizations through-out the Bay Area. NVJS endeavors to lead the way, making jazz more widely available to the entire Napa Valley, cultivating audiences, and encouraging participation in this exciting art form. The performing arts are an essential ingredient in the quality of life in our community, and jazz music plays an important role. We encourage you to become a member of the NVJS, attend our events, and help keep jazz vital and alive.
