James Dick Piano Recital at Festival Hill

At 3:00 PM on Saturday, March 9, Steinway pianist and Founder and Artistic Director of Round Top Festival Institute, James Dick will once again marvel his audience with a display of solo piano virtuosity on the Festival Concert Hall stage. The afternoon program includes works by Haydn, Beethoven, Dan Welcher and Schumann.

From his early years as prize winner of some of the world's most prestigious piano awards to his current successful career as an international guest artist, James Dick is well known to music lovers as a man of great talent, vision and class. His playing melds modern-day energy and technique with an Old World graciousness and civility, resulting in a passionate sound that keeps audiences engrossed.

An avid supporter of arts education, in 1971 Dick established the Round Top Festival Institute, among the most distinguished educational projects in the United States, where young musicians develop skills in solo, chamber and orchestral repertoire. He received the honor of being named Officier des Arts et Lettres by the French Minister of Culture in 2012, and was named Texas State Musician in 2003. In 2009, Dick received the Texas Medal of Arts in Arts Education as well as the University of Texas Distinguished Alumnus Award.
