Spring Giving Day at Festival Hill

Spring Giving Day at Festival Hill

Today, from midnight to midnight, Round Top Festival Institute has launched its annual spring 24-hour online fundraising challenge. The goal of the Spring Giving Day Campaign is to raise $18,000 to help fund the 2021 Scholarship Program. With 37 students coming this summer, we have many scholarships to provide. With the help of our friends, we can do this.

Why is the Spring Giving Day Campaign important?

On June 6, 2021, 37 of the most advanced music students from around the country and the world will arrive at Round Top Festival Institute for six weeks of study during the 2021 Round Top Music Festival. They will be mentored by 30 outstanding faculty and work with six renowned conductors on an alternating schedule during the six weeks. Students come from conservatories and music schools all over the country and are selected through a rigorous audition process. To allow student participation based on talent and merit alone, each student is awarded a tuition scholarship of $6,000 to help alleviate financial burden. See the students who will comprise the Texas Festival Orchestra here.

Here's what your donation to Round Top Festival Institute helps accomplish:

Student scholarships are at the core of our educational mission and support the Institute through the six weeks of private lessons, chamber music, orchestral studies and performance opportunities, resulting in the public concerts that many of you experience and enjoy throughout the summer season.

Here's what your donation can do for you:

      On Spring Giving Day, every donor will be entered into a drawing to receive one of three great prizes! Winners will be announced next week.
  • Two tickets to the Opening Orchestral Concert of the 2021 Round Top Music Festival on June 12.
