The Department of Music presents a Heifetz Institute Holiday Concert. With the generous support of the Dorothy L. and Henry A. Rosenberg Jr. Foundation, this special program features an all-star cast of Heifetz International Music Institute alumni, including violinists Ji-Won Song, Chloé Kiffer, Rachell Wong, and Nikita Borisevich, violist Andrew Gonzalez, cellist Nicholas Mariscal, joined by Heifetz Institute faculty keyboardist Stefan Petrov in a program of Baroque masterworks and music fit for the season.
The first half will feature the beloved “Christmas” concerto by Arcangelo Corelli, J.S. Bach’s masterful Double Concerto in D minor, and will cap off with the unique Daniel Heifetz interpretation of Vivaldi’s “Winter” concerto from The Four Seasons.
After a round of hot cider and holiday treats, the second half of the program will feature a charming string quartet arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker suite, some “Holiday Hootenanny” performances from popular 2015 Heifetz alums Rachell Wong and cellist Nicholas Mariscal, carols, singalongs, stories and more, even including the unforgettable Jascha Heifetz arrangement of “White Christmas.”
Tickets are $25 general admission; $15 for students, and free to members of the UMBC community (with valid ID), as well as children under 13. Proceeds will benefit the Heifetz Institutes’s 20th Anniversary Shenandoah Scholarship Campaign. Tickets and additional information are available here.
