Round Top Festival Music Hall


James Dick is one of the most accomplished concert piano players in our country, with accolades from around the world.  In the late 60’s he decided to teach music, and he bought property in Round Top, TX (about an hour away from Austin and San Antonio).  The project soon grew, and he established scholarships for both established and emerging music professionals.  The project grew to include a  200 acre garden, beautifully restored buildings, and a brand new 1,100 seat concert hall of world class acoustics.

Much more can be found at the web site http://www.festivalhill.org.  We had a private tour there and it was fascinating.  The concert hall, the restored historic church moved here to become a chapel, the use and re-use of natural resources in unbelievable.  If you are ever in this area, and if you like music, go take a look.  You won’t be disappointed.  James Dick lives on premises; we will be attending one of his concerts in January ’11.
