The violin master class of Jascha Heifetz was a fascinating mix of nationalities, personalities, and temperaments. Mr. Heifetz, the artist, the teacher, and the man, shared with his students a tradition which he was largely responsible for creating.
For eleven years, I was privileged to be among the elite few who were welcomed into his inner circle, and discovered what the outside world longed to know about him.

The "singing style" of violinist Sherry Kloss reflects the influence of her study with Nathan Milstein and Jascha Heifetz. Miss Kloss, acclaimed as "one of the foremost violinists of her generation," commanded international attention after winning the Concours de Violin in Europe, the Sterling Staff Competition, and the prestigious Honorary Degree of Excellence from the Academia Chigiana Musicale in Siena, Italy. In 1980, Jascha Heifetz appointed her as Master Assistant in charge of his world renowned violin class at the University of Southern California. She held this position until the death of the master. Heifetz confirmed his belief in Sherry Kloss by bequeathing to her the Tononi violin with which he made his famous Carnegie Hall debut in 1917. It is upon this historic instrument that she now performs. Her recordings, "Forgotten Gems from the Heifetz Legacy" (Kloss Classics) and "Lost and Found Treasures of the Heifetz Legacy" have received national recognition evidenced by major critical acclaim. Besides an active concert schedule, Sherry Kloss is strongly committed to education and presents master classes throughout the world. She is Founder and Artistic Director of the "Music Institute for the Development of Personal Style" at Southern Oregon University, and Co-Founder of Jascha Heifetz Society. In 1998, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania issued a proclamation recognizing Sherry Kloss as a prominent Pittsburgh artist. Miss Kloss's current projects include a new publication about her association with her mentor, "Jascha Heifetz Through My Eyes."
