Just in time for you as you plan your summer vacation...

Ok, a shameless plug for a local group. The Texas Festival Institute
at Round Top as been around for 36 years.  It was founded by the pianist
James Dick.  The performances are excellent.  The student orchestra in
past years has sounded like a professional ensemble and often plays with
far more enthusiasm.  You can get a sample of the quality of the orchestra
playing on the Albany release of the Symphonies of Benjamin Lees.  One
part of the release is devoted to Lees' Etudes for Piano and Orchestra
in a superb peformance by James Dick and the orchestra, conducted by
Robert Spano.

The setting for the concerts is like a beautiful retreat.  The town
features lovely antique shops, etc and is about halfway between Houston
and Austin.  Yes, it is hot, but the town is on a hill and the temperature
stays relatively cool.  The chamber music concerts are often held in a
rustic looking chapel on the grounds.  The concert hall is an unbelievable
structure with magnificent acoustics.

No, I don't have any affiliation with the festival, but I do try to
attend the concerts.  It is one of those occasions where music plays
center stage.  While we don't have the Boston Symphony, it is really
the Tanglewood of the south.

While the founder, James Dick, still maintains a limited concert schedule,
he has devoted most of his professional life to Round Top and Round Top
is one of the few places you can hear him play.  He is an amazingly fine
pianist who has devoted his life to the education of young people.  For
me, it is always an uplifting experience to be there.  I find it to be
a very special place.
