We think there’s a real need in the Napa Valley for more thought-provoking programming and events you can’t find anywhere else.  That’s why we founded the Napa Center for Thought & Culture.

The Himalayas, Antarctica, outer space–how do doctors keep people healthy and safe in such inhospitable places? As part of NCTC’s “The Road Less Traveled” series, millennial and adventurer Dana Levin, an emergency and aerospace medicine physician at New York’s Columbia University, will speak about the challenges of this field of work, but also about how imagination, creativity, interdisciplinary thinking and international cooperation can help to lead the way toward progress. Dr. Levin’s presentation will be followed by a conversation with Rabbi Goldstein and an opportunity for the audience members to ask questions.

Alicia Svigals, the world’s foremost klezmer fiddler and founder of the Klezmatics, teams up with Uli Geissendoerfer, jazz and world music pianist/composer, to bring life to the lost melodies from the early 20th-century fieldwork of Ukrainian Moshe Beregovski – and to re-imagine them into something new and alive to pass along future generations of listeners and players.
