Napa composer Louise Canepa absorbed her love of music by listening to family and friends sing along with her father, a gifted singer and guitar player. Growing up in a large, loving Italian family in Monterey, her childhood home was always filled with friendly people coming and going. Healthy Italian food, music after dinner, exposure to opera and love of family formed the foundation of her early years.

“I sang all my life and fell in love with classical music in fourth grade when I heard a piece by Tchaikovsky,” Canepa said. “Later on, a high school teacher tried to get me into jazz but that wasn’t my thing. I still love classical.” Canepa has organized a performance by the Rimsky-Korsakov String Quartet of St. Petersburg, Russia, to come to Yountville on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 3 p.m. at the Signs Memorial Seventh-day Adventist Church, 1920 Finnell Road.
