February 25, 2019 - Deadline for Application for The Round Top Festival Institute, to be held June 2 – July 14, 2019.  The festival offers six weeks (no absence is permitted) of intensive training for young talented musicians (born before December 31, 2001) seeking a transition from conservatories and universities to a future professional career. Symphony orchestra, chamber orchestra, chamber music and solo repertoire are included in this concentrated 6-week program. Orchestral, chamber music, solo repertoire. Trumpet faculty: Matthew Ernst, Raymond Riccomini, Marie Speziale.  Created in 1971 by concert pianist James Dick, its Founder and Artistic Director, Round Top Festival Institute offers six weeks (no absence is permitted) of intensive training for young talented musicians (born before December 31, 2001) seeking a transition from conservatories and universities to a future professional career. 

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...) 
Round Top Festival Institute offers to accepted young artists a full scholarship (worth $6,000) 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.
