Giving Tuesday at Festival Hill
Today, from midnight to midnight, Round Top Festival Institute has launched its annual fall fundraising challenge. The goal of the 24-hour online Giving Tuesday Campaign is to raise $24,000 to help fund the 2023 Scholarship Program. With 90 students coming this summer, we have many scholarships to provide. With the help of our friends, we can do this.
Why is The Giving Tuesday Campaign important?
On June 4, 2023, ninety of the most advanced music students will arrive at Round Top Festival Institute for six weeks of study during the Round Top Music Festival. They will form the Texas Festival Orchestra and perform world-class concerts at 7:30 pm each Saturday--the classical music concerts you have come to enjoy each summer.
The young music artists come from conservatories and music schools all over the world and are selected through a rigorous audition process. The students will be mentored by 40 outstanding faculty and will work with seven renowned conductors on an alternating schedule during the six weeks. 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.
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, orchestra studies and performance opportunities, resulting in the public concerts that many of you experience and enjoy throughout the summer season.
