THE JARVIS CONSERVATORY in Napa, California, offers a unique venue for Bay Area singers the first Saturday of every month -- IT'S A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGERS.
These events are regularly hosted, by the IT'S A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGERS Music Director, the internationally-known composer, coach, and pianist Richard B. Evans. Mr. Evans' musical ENCHANTED APRIL, A New Musical Romance, premiered at the Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre in Pleasanton during April 2016. For more information on Richard Evans, visit his website here.
Each program features wonderful and exciting professional vocalists as well as the most promising professional talent of tomorrow. Singers from all over the San Francisco Bay Area perform excerpts from opera, musical theatre, cabaret, and Zarzuela -- a panoply of well-loved musical favorites as well as delightful surprises from the lesser known repertoire.
IT S A GRAND NIGHT FOR SINGERS continues the first Saturday of every month at 7pm at the Jarvis Conservatory located at 1711 Main Street in historic downtown Napa. Tickets are $20 and available at the box office beginning at 6pm, with doors opening for General Seating at 6:30pm.
Every singer or vocal ensemble accepted to perform will receive a small honorarium. In addition, singers currently enrolled in a Music Program at a college, junior college, or university will be offered the opportunity to compete for the monthly cash Encouragement Prize offered by the Jarvis Conservatory.
One singer at each event might also have the opportunity to participate in a short on-stage Master Class coaching session with Maestro Evans, who was named California's Statewide Outstanding Professor before he left the California State University System to pursue his current career composing Broadway musicals.
