Heifetz On Tour gets a “Welcome Home!” from its fans in Wolfeboro for its eigth annual homecoming concert in New Hampshire. Before coming to Staunton in 2012, the Institute established deep roots and experienced exponential growth in the picturesque Lake Winnipesaukee community, with its summer program located on the campus of Brewster Academy from 2002 to 2011.
This year the Heifetz Institute’s new Artistic Director Nicholas Kitchen leads the Heifetz on Tour troupe back to Brewster Academy! A faculty member at New England Conservatory, Mr. Kitchen is also the first violinist of the Conservatory’s resident Borromeo String Quartet, an ensemble acclaimed for its “edge-of-the-seat performances” by the Boston Globe and co-founded by Kitchen and his wife, cellist Yeesun Kim, in 1989.
