The Young Artists Showcase returns to deep in the heart of Texas and the Round Top Festival Institute.
Two weeks ago, host Bob Sherman spent an hour with in-concert recordings from last summer's Round Top Festival, an intensive six-week course of coachings, masterclasses and rehearsals on a beautiful 210-acre campus between Houston and Austin. Students at Round Top give up to 30 concerts each summer in the 1,000-seat Festival Concert Hall. These concert recordings from last summer's festival include sparkling orchestral and chamber music readings from emerging artists.
