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

Rating: 5 stars  

The Heifetz International Music Institute provides a yearly infusion of classical music performed by extremely talented, engaging and energetic youth from around the world. The exuberance and dedication of the Institute’s founder, Daniel Heifetz, emanates – to the students, throughout the campus and town. The program is unique – challenging and intense – the students thrive on it! Individual development is witnessed via weekly performances as a comradery between the students and the audience evolves – a comfort communicating not only through music, but through the spoken word and visible relaxation/comfort on stage. The Institute is easily accessible to any in the community and the outreach by the Institute into the community increases yearly as does individual involvement by members of the community. The caliber of the instructors and staff Mr. Heifetz attracts speaks to the reputation the Institute has gained in the world of music. Such a void occurs when the Institute ends each season, matched only by the anticipation of the next year’s arrival of the Institute.
