Heifetz on Tour

‘Tis The Season! Join us Tuesday night, December 11th at 7:30 p.m. for a very special concert of the season: The Heifetz Holiday Homecoming! Our all-star cast of Heifetz alumni and friends includes guitarist Robby Brownviolinists Danny Jin, and Kiarra Saito- Beckman, violist Andrew Gonzalez, and cellist Zhihao Wu, all #Heifetz2018 performers returning to the region for the first time since they dazzled us with their artistry during the summertime.    

The concert will be one of Baroque favorites, timeless classics, and Yuletide delights in the spectacular and spacious new Grisham Hall on the campus of St. Anne’s-Belfiled School in Charlottesville. Selections will include Vivaldi’s infectious Guitar Concerto in D major, the rollicking Fandango by Luigi Boccherini, selections from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite and more.  You won’t want to miss the dazzling virtuosity and poignant passion of these young Heifetz performers. Hallelujah!

Tickets are $28 general admission; $15 for students, and children under 13 free accompanied by an adult.  Parking is free and plentiful on the St. Anne’s-Belfield campus, conveniently located near downtown Charlottesville.

All proceeds will benefit the Heifetz Institutes’s  Shenandoah Scholarship Campaign, with a goal of raising $200,000 in scholarship support for students for the 2019 Heifetz International Music Institute, taking place at Mary Baldwin Unviersity from June 27 to Aug. 10, 2019.
