We are excited to announce that musicians from the Heifetz International Music Institute will arrive on campus February 2 to begin a three-day residency, including master classes and performances. The residency will feature four outstanding artists connected to the world-renowned Heifetz Institute: Alumni standouts Katharina Kang, violin, Andrew Gonzalez, viola, and Coleman Itzkoff, cello, along with faculty pianist Carlos Avila.
Sponsored by Friends of the Arts (FOA), the Heifetz Institute musicians will hold performances and Q&A’s for Lower School students and host workshops for Middle and Upper School students. The Heifetz Institute emphasizes teaching performers to communicate with audiences through classes in music, drama, dance, public speaking, and health and wellness. This training promises to translate into an engaging and very interactive experience for our students.
The residency will end with a free concert for the community by the Heifetz Institute musicians at Roberts Theater at Andrews Hall - The Center for Performing Arts on Thursday, February 4, at 7:00 pm. We hope that you and your family can join us for this special event.
