We kick off 2023 with a debut program that looks ahead to some milestones and new arrivals to the Heifetz Institute in the New Year, as well as celebrating the artistry of the students, alumni, and outstanding faculty who visit the Heifetz International Music Institute year after year.  You’ll hear performances of works by Rachmaninoff (whose 150th birth anniversary is coming up in 2023), Vivaldi, Beethoven, and the Scottish duo of Fraser & Haas, tapped to be resident artists at Heifetz 2023.
