Festival Napa Valley lost a treasured artist and friend when Maestro Joel Revzen succumbed to complications from COVID-19 in May 2020.
Revzen’s long, varied, and successful international career included spending much of the last 20 years at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.
He was a beloved faculty member of the Festival’s Blackburn Music Academy, leading students in concerts, master classes, and workshops. His colleagues and students remember him for his kindness, generosity, and joy for life.
In tribute to Maestro Revzen, Festival Napa Valley is honored to annually award the Joel Revzen Conducting Fellowship, a career development grant and performance opportunity for a promising young conductor.
