A holiday concert of seasonal classics and Yuletide delights featuring the young stars of the Heifetz Institute – home again in Staunton at Mary Baldwin University’s Francis Auditorium.
Our all-star cast of Heifetz alumni includes prize-winning artists Kenneth Naito (violin), Noelle Naito (violin), Steven Baloue (viola), and Jared Blajian (cello), along with faculty pianist Allison Freeman. The concerts will feature favorites of the season, along with glittering solo works, Baroque gems, chamber masterworks, and some special Yuletide treats. The Heifetz Holiday concerts are invariably among the highlights of the holiday concert calendar, so you won’t want to miss the dazzling virtuosity and poignant passion of these young Heifetz performers, whose music will help to make the holidays glow a bit brighter. Hallelujah!
