Heifetz Musicians Appear on Campus

October 1, 2015

Heifetz on Tour, the touring and outreach arm of the Heifetz International Music Institute, will make a special appearance on October 8 in Staunton, featuring two of the institute’s outstanding 2015 alumni, violinist Madison Vest and cellist Kevin Mills, along with faculty pianist and audience favorite Carlos Avila. The concert program, “Baroque, Classical, and Rococo,” includes Baroque-era favorites by Bach and Handel, Tchaikovsky’s virtuosic “Rococo Variations,” for cello and piano, and a complete performance of Beethoven’s masterful “Archduke” Piano Trio.

The concert is at 7:30 p.m. October 8 in Francis Auditorium in Pearce Science Center.

Seats can be reserved for the concert by making a tax deductible donation online at www.heifetzinstitute.org or by calling 540-907-4446. All proceeds from the concert will benefit the Institute’s 2016 Shenandoah Scholarship Campaign, an initiative to secure $200,000 in scholarship funds for the institute’s 20th anniversary.

The fall tour also includes a stop at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art in Charlotte, North Carolina; a residency at Jamestown Arts Center in Jamestown, RI; and a concert with Performers of Westchester in Westchester, NY.
