Announcing the Heifetz 2021 Season

The 2021 Heifetz Institute

We are planning a hybrid program for Summer 2021 featuring both in-person and virtual elements to meet the needs of our exceptional students. No matter the format, you can count on a transformative and immersive summer music experience. Check back for program and application information in mid-November.


Ensemble in Residence

Just as the Virtual Institute was an innovative response to the pandemic, the Heifetz Ensemble in Residence is a creative alternative to our acclaimed Heifetz on Tour program, designed to offer real-world performance experience and outreach opportunities for our most talented and engaging young alums.

Tune in for weekly performances from our students, alumni, and faculty every Sunday at 9am (EDT) on our website, YouTube, Facebook and Instagram channels.
