WOLFEBORO — An ensemble of talented musicians from the renowned Heifetz international Music Institute will be back in Wolfeboro for its sixth annual Heifetz On Tour concert at Anderson Hall on the campus of Brewster Academy at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 14. The concert will feature a trio of outstanding Heifetz performers: violinist June Lee, cellist Noémie Raymond-Friset, and faculty pianist Carlos Avila. All were participants in the 2017 Heifetz Institute, the highly regarded string instruction program and accompanying festival located on the campus of Mary Baldwin University in Staunton, Virginia. Founded by virtuoso soloist and pedagogue Daniel Heifetz, the Institute is known for its Heifetz Performance and Communication Training, a unique approach to music training, education, and presentation. Before moving to Virginia in 2012, the Heifetz Institute established deep roots and experienced exponential growth in the Wolfeboro community with its summer program located at Brewster Academy.
The concert will have special meaning for violinist June Lee, who will be returning to Wolfeboro for the first time since being a Heifetz student on the Brewster campus in 2007 and 2008. The April 14 concert will feature Lee and her fellow performers in a program called “April in Paris,” featuring some of the greatest works of solo and chamber works by noted French composers Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, and Camille Saint-Saëns, along with those who studied, worked, lived, loved, gambled, and otherwise left their mark on the City of Light, including Fritz Kriesler, Niccoló Paganini, and even the Argentinian tango master Astor Piazzolla.
Tickets for the concert are available for $20 at the door, at Black’s Paper Store and at Avery Insurance in Wolfeboro; at Innisfree Bookshop in Meredith, by calling 603-569-2151; or by visiting www.friendsofmusic.org. High school students with ID will be admitted free of charge and any child accompanied by an adult ticket purchaser will be admitted free of charge.
