During Edna’s 23 years as managing director of IMG Artists, she personally looked after the career of violinist, Itzhak Perlman and launched the careers of musicians such as pianists Evgeny Kissin and Lang Lang, violinist Hilary Hahn, and conductors Franz Welser-Mõst and Alan Gilbert.

Edna believes young musicians can grow their own careers, with “hard work, blind faith, passion for the cause, incessant networking and a vision that refuse[s] to be tarnished by naysayers.”

Festival Napa Valley, Kaiser Permanente, and the Young People’s Chorus of New York City Celebrate the Power of Music in Support of Youth Mental Health

Festival Napa Valley, Kaiser Permanente, and the Young People’s Chorus of New York City Celebrate the Power of Music in Support of Youth Mental Health

AloneTogether Multimedia Exhibit to open at the CIA at COPIA in July as part of

Festival Napa Valley 

NAPA, CA (June 27, 2022) – Festival Napa Valley is partnering with Kaiser Permanente to present the West Coast Premiere of AloneTogether, a powerful multimedia art installation created during the pandemic by Francisco Núñez, Artistic Director and Founder of the Young People’s Chorus of New York City.  Premiered at the High Line Nine Gallery in New York in late 2021, AloneTogether is a journey into the subconscious minds of children and teens during a time of global turmoil and transformation, examining life in lockdown through the eyes of children.

AloneTogether comprises spoken word, poetry, sculpture, video art, music, and film and features 500 YPC choristers, 15 composers and songwriters, 7 poets, 3 choreographers, and 2 filmmakers. Ansley Sawyer brings the choristers' stories to life through film. New pieces by composers Samuel Adler, Derek Bermel, Thomas Cabaniss, Paquito D’Rivera, Aneesa Folds, Gordon Getty, Michael Gordon, Michael Harrison, Ted Hearne, Yuka C. Honda, David Lang, Elizabeth and Francisco Núñez, Jim Papoulis, and Paola Prestini set those feelings to music.

“For more than 16 years, Festival Napa Valley has made music and the performing arts a pillar of the Napa community through programs that unite, transform, and inspire,” said Festival Napa Valley president and CEO Richard Walker. “We are proud to partner with Kaiser Permanente to further our shared vision of a stronger, healthier, more vibrant community through music and the arts, programs that advance the health and wellness of young people and the young at heart.”

As our community recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, Kaiser Permanente is partnering with Festival Napa Valley to address mental health recovery and build resiliency among our youth,” said Nor Jemjemian, Senior Vice President and Area Manager for Kaiser Permanente Napa Solano. “We hope this exhibit inspires healing, hope, dialogue and a sense of community so those who experience it will know they are not alone.”

“So many of today’s youth are faced with unique, generational challenges. Many find themselves living in a hyper-individualized world.  When the pandemic hit and we went into insolation, we created an exhibit that draws attention toward children and young adults, and their experiences in the early days of the pandemic.  This exhibit asks viewers to listen to our youth so we can understand them and make the future brighter “– Francisco Núñez, Artistic Director and Founder, Young People’s Chorus of New York City
