Description

Heifetz On Tour returns to the Pine Tree State! Enjoy a night of great music played by a quinted of outstanding musicians from the Heifetz International Music Institute, renowned around the world for its training of the next generation of great string players.

This year the Heifetz Institute's new Artistic Director Nicholas Kitchen leads the Heifetz troupe back to Maine. A faculty member at New England Conservatory, Mr. Kitchen is also the leader of the Conservatory’s resident Borromeo String Quartet, an ensemble acclaimed for its “edge-of-the-seat performances” by the Boston Globe and co-founded by Kitchen and his wife, cellist Yeesun Kim, in 1989.

Mr. Kitchen will lead four outstanding Heifetz alums on the Down East tour: Violinists Julian Rhee and Yebin Yoo, cellist Noémie Raymond-Friset, and pianist Jingxuan Zhang. They'll perform both solo and chamber works works by a wide range of composers, includeing Bach, Saint Saens, and Antonin Dvorak.

The Oct. 24th performance is the culmination.of a four-day residency in MidCoast Maine featuring a series of school, civic, and outreach events supported in part by the Georgetown Island Educational Foundation. It will take place in the resonant acoustics of the historic 1856 Robinhood Free Meetinghouse, a MidCoast Maine landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Beverages available before and throughout the concert and following the performance there will be an opportunity to meet the artists. Concert tickets are $22.50 in advance, $25 at the door. Dinner and concert is $77.50. Discounted tickets for students are available, and kids under 13 are FREE to cultivate that next generation.
