Testimonials - Recording at Festival Hill

The Round Top Festival Institute site is like no other place I have ever been to record music. An acoustically brilliant Concert Hall, a beautiful sounding Chapel and a wonderful staff create an unmatched setting for great work. Accommodation and food are excellent. Symphony Orchestras, Classical Chamber Music, Big Bands, Jazz, Folk, Pop and all other forms of acoustic driven music will be equally at home in this environment. A little piece of heaven far enough away from the big cities.

I spent the better part of a day recording "Where Angels Hide" for my album "Never Say Never" in the Chapel at Festival Hill. Apart from two dear friends, the engineer, and my two dogs lying either side of me, it was just me and the Steinway and that fabulous sounding room. Totally magical.

I have never had such an enjoyable, creative, inspiring experience through out my career than I had at Festival Hill recording my latest album, The Grifter's Hymnal. The accommodations, the meals, the atmosphere and the hospitality were stellar. I would recommend this facility to any artist wanting to nurture their muse and capture the potential of their creative higher self.
