‘Tis The Season! Join us Monday night, December 10th at 7:30 p.m. for a very special holiday concert….the Heifetz Holiday Homecoming! Our all-star cast of Heifetz alumni and friends includes guitarist Robby Brown, violinists Danny Jin, and Kiarra Saito- Beckman, violist Andrew Gonzalez, and cellist Zhihao Wu, all #Heifetz2018 performers returning to Staunton for the first time since they dazzled us with their artistry during the summertime.
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!
Tickets are $28 general admission; $15 for students, and children under 13 free accompanied by an adult.
All proceeds will benefit the Heifetz Institutes’s Shenandoah Scholarship Campaign, with a goal of raising $200,000 in scholarship support for students for the 2019 Heifetz International Music Institute, taking place at Mary Baldwin Unviersity from June 27 to Aug. 10, 2019.
Venue: American Shakespeare Center
