The Longest Running Show In The Napa Valley


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.

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.


Apply To Perform Today

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.

Application Process

Professionals, amateur, and student singers interested in applying to participate must fill out the online application. Because each program can accommodate only seven singers, and because the roster for each monthly program fills up quickly, singers are encouraged to APPLY AS FAR IN ADVANCE AS THEY KNOW THEIR SCHEDULE, and certainly not less than FOUR WEEKS PRIOR to each monthly event. Returning performers SHOULD FILL OUT ALL QUESTIONS ON THE APPLICATION -- Even if we have the information on file from a previous application.
