Heifetz InstituteBetween Heifetz on Tour and the summer Institute, we proudly offer more than 50 concerts per year — all designed with you in mind, and all delivered with our signature informative and amiable approach. The 2015 summer Institute runs from June 25 – August 8th. We’ll get things started with an opening ceremony and celebration in the heart of downtown Staunton on Friday, June 26th and cap things off with closing hoe down and community BBQ on August 7th. In-between, we’ll feature five student concerts and one faculty concert per week, as well as host informal “Heifetz Hootenannies” in local venues on Saturday nights. This year, our popular faculty concerts will begin earlier, be shorter in length, and start off with featured wines from regional vineyards. These “Heifetz Happy Hour Concerts” will take place in Francis Auditorium on Friday evenings beginning at 5:30. You’ll be out in time to enjoy a full dinner out or take in another show or movie. Come enjoy!

Stars of Tomorrow

Stars of Tomorrow concerts give our extraordinary students the opportunity to showcase their abilities and refine their communication skills. We offer five of these vital performance opportunities for our students per week as they work diligently to perfect their artistry. The Stars of Tomorrow concerts are audience favorites. There’s nothing quite like witnessing these gifted young musicians blossom over the course of the six-week Institute.Heifetz Institute

Attention: It has come to our attention that tickets for an event titled "Heifetz Concert" became available on the American Shakespeare Center website. This was an error due to a change in staff. No such concert was planned, and those who purchased tickets have since been refunded. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused, and look forward to having you attend other Heifetz events in the future.
