Underwriting Opportunities
Round Top Festival Institute

Round Top Festival Institute offers a unique opportunity to underwriters. Celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2021, 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 2021 Round Top Music Festival, we will present 40 public performances, each offering an underwriting opportunity. Sponsors of concerts, conductors, soloists and master classes enjoy the benefit of exposure to people from many localities and walks of life. We recognize underwriters on our website, in the summer program book distributed at Festival Hill throughout the year, on signage in the concert hall and announcements from the stage.

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

We will work with you individually to help you select the performance or conductor's appearance you wish to underwrite. Secure your sponsorship while underwriting opportunities are still available. Please email giving@festivalhill.org or call the Institute office at 979-249-3129. To be recognized in the 2021 Program Book, a pledge should be received by May 10, 2021.
