Underwriting Opportunities

Round Top Festival Institute offers a unique opportunity to underwriters. This exceptional center for performance and learning, located in rural Central Texas, is a cultural treasure with international impact. Our students, faculty and conductors come to Round Top from locations around the globe to work together during the six-week music festival. The world-class quality programming draws audiences from metropolitan and rural areas to our magnificent concert hall in a one-of-a-kind pastoral setting--where education and music-making come together.

During the 2016 Round Top Music Festival, we will present 20 public concerts, each offering an underwriting opportunity. Sponsors of concerts and conductors enjoy the benefit of exposure to people from many localities and walks of life. We recognize underwriters on our website, in our annual events calendar, in the program book distributed at Festival Hill throughout the year, on signage in the concert hall and announcements from stage.

Underwriters are provided with complimentary transferable passes and special hospitality for their guests.

To discuss concert or conductor sponsorship, please email giving@festivalhill.org or call the Institute office at 979-249-3129. We will work with you individually to help you select the concert or conductor's appearance you wish to underwrite, for which you will receive prominent recognition. Many underwriting opportunities are still available. To be recognized in the 2016 Program Book, a pledge must be received by May 15.
