Our Team

Founders who are the bedrock of this organization

Firstly, there are the founders who are the bedrock of this organization. Without their vision, thoughts, and plans, there would be no Napa Valley Theater. Then, we have our professional tutors from various places who are still at different active points in their careers. Also, there is a well-organized and experienced administrative staff. 


They do their best to ensure and oversee the smooth daily running of the conservatory. These people include the board of trustees, the chief financial officer, the president, and the vice president of student affairs and their teams. We also have lots of contributors and personnel working behind the scenes, without which we would be unable to run these programs.
