Round Top Festival Institute is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. We have decided to postpone the summer music festival until next year, June-July 2021. We will continue to monitor the official health directions issued locally, statewide and nationally to determine when it is safe for Festival Hill to return to business as usual.
Currently, the Festival Hill Campus is closed for business. No tours are being offered. We encourge adherence to the current statewide stay-at-home order.

|2020 Round Top Festival Institute Update|
It is with heart-breaking sadness that we announce the Round Top Music Festival will not take place this summer. We have decided to postpone the studies and performances of this year's carefully planned repertoire until the beginning of June 2021, the actual 50th year -- our golden anniversary.
We will hopefully resume our cultural and music events on Saturday August 22nd, 2020, which begins our August-to-April series.
Additional details regarding the Round Top Music Festival will be communicated directly and personally to the 2020 accepted Young Artists and Faculty.
