‘Tis The Season! Some of the brightest stars of the 2019 Summer Institute will be hitting the road for our annual Heifetz Holiday Homecoming Tour. Our all-star cast of Heifetz alumni includes prize-winning artists Angela Chan, Julia Angelov, Kayleigh Kim, and Brian Zhan, violins; violist Matthew Cohen, cellist Andres Sanchez, and pianist Zhenni Li.
The tour will feature season favorites, glittering solo works, chamber music masterworks, and some special Yuletide delights. Selections will include Vivaldi’s sublime “Christmas” Violin Concerto, Tchaikovsky’s captivating Rococo Variations, the Sinfonia from J.S. Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, the aching Hebrew Melody by Joseph Achron, and the magnificent Piano Quintet No. 2 in A Major by Antonín Dvořák. Heifetz performances are invariably among the most talked-about concert events on the holiday concert calendar, so you won’t want to miss the dazzling virtuosity and poignant passion of these young Heifetz performers, whose music will help to make the holidays glow a bit brighter. Hallelujah!
All proceeds will benefit the Heifetz Institutes’s Shenandoah Scholarship Campaign, with a goal of raising $300,000 in scholarship support for students to attend the 2020 Heifetz International Music Institute, taking place at Mary Baldwin University in Staunton, VA from June 25 to Aug. 9, 2020.
