After the rain, come the stars! Our signature Stars of Tomorrow series kicks of with a Fourth of July-worth bang with for 2016 with the return of no fewer than three of our celebrated alums returning as Artists in Residence, helping to inaugurate our season in the freshly-refurbished Francis Auditorium on the campus of Mary Baldwin College in Staunton.
Come check out the result of the extraordinary Take Your Seat campaign that enabled us to fix up Francis in record time, with a varied program that will begin with Heifetz alum Coleman Itzkoff playing Bach, and also include violist Andrew Gonzalez, playing a fascinating new contemporary work by D.C. area composer Joel Friedman. The first of tonight’s program will also feature 2016 Ashkenasi/Kirshbaum Chamber Music Seminar students Kunbo Xu and Rachell Wong performing works by Brahms and Amy Beach.
Then in the second half, brace yourself for a bravura performance! Heifetz alum Chad Hoopes, who will appear with the National Symphony Orchestra at Wolf Trap later this month, will preview that performance with a complete performance of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with collaborative pianist Dina Vainshtein.
Take Your Seat for this one! Just a $5.00 suggested Donation to hear our remarkable Heifetz Institute Stars of Tomorrow in action!
