The Napa Valley Festival del Sole began in 2006 and its founders envisioned a summer festival to define Napa Valley as a destination for culture. Since its inception, the festival has been enthusiastically supported by the vintners and resorts of Napa Valley.
This year’s season delivers a wealth of cultural activities including concerts, dances, film screenings and more.
The first night, for example, includes an intimate concert with the incomparable Audra McDonald. She returns to the concert stage after four seasons on the ABC television series, Private Practice, and after winning a record-tying 5th Tony Award for her unforgettable performance in Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess. Following a castle-tower reception overlooking the Castello di Amorosa vineyards, guests will be escorted to the central courtyard to enjoy this Broadway legend who will perform a selection of favorite songs and original pieces written just for her.
And that’s just the first night!
