Raise your paddle high for the next generation at Festival Napa Valley’s Arts for All Gala, Wine Country’s biggest arts charity event. Proceeds from the evening provide free and affordable access to international quality performances for Napa Valley residents. Monies raised also support public school arts education programs in Napa County, and scholarships for emerging musicians.
Headlining the event are actors Jordan Donica (Marquis de Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson), Michael Luwoye (Alexander Hamilton) and Isaiah Johnson (George Washington) from the National Tour of Hamilton. Hamilton is the story of America's Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War and was the new nation’s first Treasury Secretary. Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B, and Broadway, Hamilton is the story of America then, as told by America now.
And actor, comedian and musician Bill Murray gives a sneak peek of his highly anticipated show, New Worlds, with Jan Vogler and friends.
This year’s gala has a new venue: the magnificent HALL Winery in St. Helena, an art-filled estate that combines the best of the past and the future. Guests will be treated to a gourmet dinner from La Toque's Ken Frank, and exquisite wines from HALL and WALT. The festivities cap off with a high-energy live auction featuring a dozen once-in-a-lifetime luxury lots.
Live entertainment is a part of the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Vocal Arts Series
