February 19, 2018 - Deadline for Application for the 2018 Round Top Festival Institute (48th Season), to be held in Round Top, TX (USA). Created in 1971 by concert pianist James Dick, The Round Top Festival Institute offers six weeks (no absence is permitted) of intensive training for young talented musicians (born before December 31, 2000) seeking a transition from conservatories and universities to a future professional career. The Round Top Festival Institute owns its campus (over 200 acres), its venues (a 1,000-seat air-conditioned concert hall and a 160-seat chapel), its practice rooms, its accommodations, its food services and other amenities (swimming pool, jogging trails...) The Round Top Festival Institute offers to accepted young artists a full scholarship (worth $6,500) for tuition through the James Dick Foundation for the Performing Arts. The relatively small number of participants (about 95) 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. Enrollment includes 28 violins, 10 violas, 10 cellos, 6 basses, 4 flutes, 4 oboes, 4 clarinets, 4 bassoons, 5 horns, 4 trumpets, 3 trombones, 1 tuba, 6 percussions, 2 harps and 4 pianists. The trumpet faculty includes Matthew Ernst, Marie Speziale, and Micah Wilkinson. Applications are open at http://festivalhill.org/students/register.php  Festival is scheduled for June 3 - July 15, 2018.
