The Heifetz Holiday Tour Starts Next Week!
Once again we have an all-star cast of Heifetz alums ready to spread good cheer and great music of the season, including violinists Ji-Won Song and Max Yiming Mao, violist Molly Wise, and cellist Noémie Raymond-Friset, along with Heifetz faculty keyboardist Stefan Petrov, guest soprano Angel Azzarra, and, for the final concert in Baltimore, by violinists Kenneth and Noelle Naito.
Our holiday tour program is nothing but pure delights, including dazzling virtuoso pieces, Baroque masterworks, touching string quartets, and songs, anthems and carols to celebrate Yuletide and Hanukkah, many of them specially-arranged for this tour. Click here to see the complete concert program!
Heifetz performances are invariably among the most talked-about concert events of the holiday season in the area, and you won’t want to miss the dazzling virtuosity and poignant passion of these young Heifetz performers. Hallelujah!
