Festival Concert Hall at the Round Top Festival Institute in Texas

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.
