‘Tis The Season! Join us Sunday afternoon, December 9th, for the first-ever Heifetz concert in the freshly-refurbished auditorium of the Highland Center, sitting atop Highland County in Monterey, Virginia.
This special program features an all-star cast of 2018 Heifetz alumni, including violinists Kiarra Saito-Beckman and Danny Jin, violist Andrew Gonzalez, and cellist Zhihao Wu, joined by special guest guitarist Robby Brown, in a holiday-infused program of Baroque favorites, classical masterworks and music for the season.
Special guest artist Virginia Bolena of Staunton’s Trinity Episcopal Church will also be on hand to perform Handel’s delightful Organ Concerto in B-flat as part of the festive proceedings.
The entire concert will be one of Baroque favorites, timeless classics, and Yuletide delights ….including Vivaldi’s infectious Guitar Concerto in D major, the rollicking Fandango by Luigi Boccherini, selections from Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite.” and more. You won’t want to miss the dazzling virtuosity and poignant passion of these young Heifetz performers. Hallelujah!

Venue: Highland Center
The mission of the Highland Center is to serve all citizens of Highland County by being a catalyst for cultural and economic development.
In 1997, when the Highland Elementary School building became vacant, a group of concerned citizens came together with the idea of restoring and using the building for activities to benefit the community.
In 1998, the building was purchased and The Highland Center was formed as a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. The Center developed a business incubation, farmers’ market and commercial kitchen programs, and has served as a public venue for countless community events, operated an employment program for area youth and led important regional initiatives to advance tourism, agriculture and the arts.
Today, the Highland Center houses 6 tenants, a mix of individual artists and non-profit organizations. The Highland Center’s reach has expanded beyond Highland County to benefit the entire Allegheny Highlands Region, including Bath County, Virginia and Pocahontas and Pendleton Counties,
