Round Top Music Festival
50th Round Top Festival Institute (June 6 – July 18, 2021)
Founded in 1971 by concert pianist James Dick, Round Top Festival Institute offers selected talented young artists a 6-week program including Orchestral, Chamber music, and solo repertoires… in the smallest incorporated town in Texas! (pop. 87)
Round Top Festival Institute owns its campus (over 200 acres), its venues (an extraordinary, acoustically peerless 1,000-seat concert hall and a 160-seat chapel), its practice rooms, its accommodations, its food service and other amenities (swimming pool, jogging trails...) The whole project has been specifically envisioned and realized to provide the best environment to implement the program.
The relatively small number of participants (usually 96) whose admission is based on auditions and recommendations and the fact that participants and faculty share the same campus, create a collegial atmosphere through which a constant flow of stimulating exchanges enlightens everyone. Due to the post-COVID pandemic circumstances, the number of students in 2021 is limited to 37 young artists from major schools of music (Ball State University, Baylor University, Berklee College of Music, Boston University, Carnegie Mellon University, Cleveland Institute of Music, Curtis Institute of Music, DePaul University, Eastman School of Music, Indiana University, Mannes School of Music, New England Conservatory, Oberlin Conservatory, Southern Methodist University, University of Cincinnati, University of Michigan, University of North Carolina, University of North Texas, University of Oregon, University of Texas at Austin, Vanderbilt University, Yale University.)
Admission Adult: USD 30.00,
