Our Admissions team has viewed all of the auditions, read the recommendations, and double-checked the facts and figures…and now it’s Decision Time! Over the course of the next few days, we will be notifying successful applicants to our summer program, and the Heifetz 20th Anniversary “Class of ’16” will begin to take shape.
“It’s one of the most exciting – and agonizing – times of the year,” declares Founder and Artistic Director Daniel Heifetz. “It’s thrilling to see the superb artistry of these young performers from all over the world who want only to come to Staunton and study at the Heifetz Institute this summer.”
But the agony is also very real, for we also know that we will lose some of the most accomplished players to other programs with robust endowments and/or completely tuition-free programs.
That’s where the Shenandoah Scholarship Campaign – and you – come in.
As we prepare to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Daniel Heifetz’s pioneering communicative vision and its contribution to the realm of classical music, our Heifetz Board of Directors has again presented us with a signficant challenge – and incredible opportunity. If we can raise $100,000 for scholarships before March 31 st, 2016, it will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Heifetz Institute Board…providing us with $200,000 in scholarship funds for students to attend the 20th Anniversary Summer Program.
The Shenandoah Scholarship Campaign is inspired by our goal to bring deserving students to this beautiful part of the world for a summer that is guaranteed to change their lives. If we realize the full $200,000 goal, we will be able to offer scholarship assistance to more of our students than ever before.
- A $50 donation to the Heifetz Institute right now will be worth $100.
- $100 will become $200.
- $500 will be worth $1000.
- And a tax-deductible donation of $3050 will be worth $6100 – the equivalent of a full scholarship to a deserving Summer ’16 Heifetz student.
Regardless of the amount, every donation towards the Shenandoah Scholarship campaign is vitally important to this campaign’s success. We’ll be posting updates on our progress on our website and on our Facebook page, as well as connecting donors with scholarship recipients in the coming months. Thank you!
