Heifetz On Tour gets a “Welcome Home!” from its fans in Wolfeboro for its fifth 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’s program features three brilliant Heifetz alums – violinist Rachell Wong, violist Andrew Gonzalez, and cellist Ben Fried – joined by Heifetz faculty pianist Carlos Avila in a program that will feature some stunning Baroque virtuoso pieces, popular favorites by Rachmaninoff and Manuel De Falla, some crossover Celtic fiddling, and will culminate with a complete performance of Robert Schumann’s Piano Quartet in E-flat major, one of the true masterworks of chamber music.
And even though the Heifetz Institute is no longer in New Hampshire, the Granite State continues to be in our hearts and minds! At last year’s concert, we unveiled a concert tribute to New Hampshire’s own Amy Cheney Beach, (the original inspiration for organizing the Wolfeboro Friends of Music), which became a staple of our Heifetz On Tour concerts in 2016. Check out this breathtaking outdoor performance by two of this year’s touring artists, violinist Rachell Wong and pianist Carlos Avila of Amy’s Beach’s Romance for violin and piano – a piece they first played in Wolfeboro!
