Violinist Daniel Heifetz

Jan 4, 2013

Retired concert violinist Daniel Heifetz founded the Heifetz International Music Institute in 1996 with a mission to draw “the sacred fire” from the world’s brightest and best young classical musicians. Daniel sat down recently with Martha to talk about life, virtuosity, technical precision, and passion. 

In 2012, the Institute moved to Staunton and officially became the Heifetz International Music Institute at Mary Baldwin College.
