Review for Heifetz International Music Institute Inc, Staunton, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Daniel Heifetz, the founder and guiding light of this organization is one impressive individual. He is the leader we all would love to have working in our businesses. Daniel through his hard work and charismatic personality has contructed an organization of professionals that is truly amazing. The qualtiy of his teaching staff and his students attests to the high standard he has set for his institute. Daniels enthusiasm can be seen on the faces of his students when they are perfoming or merely walking around the campus. The same may be said for the staff. Daniel has really reached out to his Board and Guild for guidance, an unusual charcturistic for a founder of ths type of organization. Daniel is always looking for ways to expand the Institutes influence and encourage people to get involved. The Heifetz Institute is the best of the best primarily due to the leadership of Daniel Heifetz. As with most non-profits raising money, especially in these hard times, is the Intitutes greatest challenge. Much of tis falls on Daniel's shoulders. Other than that Classical music never sounded so sweet!
