Between 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, fast-paced, and amiable approach.
The 2015 Summer Institute runs from June 26 – August 7th. We will launch tour 2015 Festival of Concerts with a Convocation Concert and Picnic at the Sunspots Pavilion (Staunton Wharf ) on Saturday, June 27th, and cap things off with a Grand Finale and Farewell Feast on August 7th.
In between, we’ll be offering six concerts per week, as well as informal “Heifetz Hootenannies” in local venues on Saturday nights. We’ve also added 2 p.m. “Heifetz Sunday Matinees “- a great way to wrap up a weekend in Staunton. This year, our popular faculty concerts will begin earlier, be shorter in length (with no intermission), and start off with featured wines from regional vineyards. These “Celebrity Series Happy Hour Concerts” will take place in Francis Auditorium on Friday evenings. They begin with wine and cheese from local vintners and vendors from at 5:00 p.m. The concerts begin at 6:00. You’ll be out by 7:15 so you can enjoy a full dinner out or take in another show or movie. Come enjoy all Staunton has to offer!
Saturday, June 27, 2015. Sunspots Pavilion, Staunton Wharf. 7:30 p.m. Bring chairs and a picnic if you like!
Mondays: Heifetz At the Temple House
Mondays at noon we offer some of our brilliant students in free, casual noontime concerts at the historic Temple House of Israel, just around the corner from our headquarters and gift shop in downtown Staunton, VA.
Tuesdays-Thursdays: 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. Tuesday through Thursday, Stars of Tomorrow concerts are held at 7:30 p.m. in Francis Auditorium on the campus of Mary Baldwin College. The suggested donation at the door is $5.
