The Heifetz 25-Year Advent CalendarDay 22 - 2017: A Whole Lotta Love, and a Bartok Bonus!
July 31, 2017: Staunton, VA
2017 was truly a “Summer of Love” at the Heifetz Institute, where in conjunction with the Virginia Department of Tourism, Love indeed came to Staunton, as part of a traveling statewide exhibit.
Certainly we felt lots of love from our Heifetz audiences, and remarkable energy and ferocious commitment from our record 111 students! So much so that we added two “bonus concerts” in our final week to accommodate the number of performers itching to take the Francis stage one last time.
Leading off with 17-year-old Israeli violinist Mark Karlinski, with a rare Heifetz performance of one of Béla Bartók’s earliest, briefest, and yet most iconic works: the six Romanian Dances. Mark is joined by our indefatigable pianist Dina Vainshtein.
Our love-ly Summer of 2017 had 111 students, performing in 52 concerts!
Did you attend the Heifetz Institute? If so, you’re part of an exclusive group of musicians who have explored their full creative potential through the advanced private lessons, unrivaled concert appearances, and the unique Performance & Communication Training method. We believe that the one-of-a-kind Heifetz training prepares our students to become not only more effective communicators and performers, but also more confident and dynamic in all facets of life. Now we want to reconnect and hear more about how you’ve put your Heifetz experience to use – both on and off stage!
Fast Away The Old Year Passes! The Heifetz Institute has been in the business of helping brilliant young talents blossom for 25 years now, the last two of which have required us to work even harder, smarter, and better to pursue our trailblazing mission. As you consider your year-end giving, please consider supporting our mission to enable the world’s most promising young musical talents to realize their artistic and communicative potential.
