James Dick in concert

James Dick is an internationally renowned concert pianist, with his roots in Texas.  In 1971 he established the Festival, a 10 day piano concert.  Over the years, this grew into a year round training facility for professional musicians.  Today, the Festival Hill complex includes multiple buildings, including a fabulous concert hall.

The most amazing fact is that it is located in Round Top, Texas — population 77!  This is about 60 miles west of Houston, in the country.  But people come from all around for the concerts held in the Festival Hall.  We were fortunate to catch one of the infrequent concert by James Dick himself.  Suffice it to say, it was fantastic — one of the best classical concerts we have attended.

If you get a chance to catch a concert here, I suggest you do… it is very special.  The web site is http://www.festivalhill.org.
