About New Music Decanted
New Music Decanted is a new nonprofit concert series with its core ensemble based in Napa.

Prefacing the concerts, the New Music Decanted podcast and YouTube channel will give concertgoers a glimpse into the composers’ minds, the performers’ process, and the qualities that makes the chosen music remarkable.
