Jarvis Conservatory

Utilizing a grant from the Jarvis family, the Conservatory began operation in downtown Napa in 1995, providing training and support for artists. The 220-seat Conservatory, described as a jewel of a theater and an acoustic marvel, is dedicated to serious art forms not often available in other places, and at the same time, art forms relating to the large Hispanic community of Napa.

Aldo and Ilmar López-Gavilán at Jarvis Conservatory

Cuban pianist Aldo López-Gavilán, who made his festival debut in 2016 and was awarded the festival’s Khaledi Prize in 2017, is joined by his brother, Ilmar López-Gavilán, on violin for an electrifying concert of Aldo’s original compositions. Drawing from a range of colors that includes Middle Eastern, Irish and Brazilian sonorities, Aldo's compositions weave a layered tapestry described as magical, optimistic and at its core, deeply soulful. This very special evening commemorates the release of two collaborations between Aldo and Ilmar: a new album of original compositions and an upcoming public television documentary about their musical journeys.
