Underwriting Opportunities
Round Top Festival Institute, the sole endeavor of The James Dick Foundation for the Performing Arts, offers a unique opportunity to underwriters. This exceptional center for performance and learning is a Texas 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. Underwriters with charitable or marketing interests in furthering cultural enrichment and education play an important role in the continued viability of the Institute.

Conveniently located between Austin and Houston, Festival Hill draws its audience from metropolitan areas across the state and beyond, as well as from the rural area surrounding Round Top. During the 2023 Round Top Music Festival, we will present 50 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 elegantly produced festival program book distributed at Festival Hill and in press packets throughout the year, on signage in the concert hall and through announcements from the stage.

Underwriters are provided with complimentary tickets for their guests.
