Back in June when I joined Joyce Shillings to The Big Red Barn show, we stopped by to check out The International Festival-Institute in Round Top. The Festival Hill Campus opened officially in 1976. It certainly was a sight to see, being surrounded by The Gardens at The Festival Hill made you feel like you had traveled to another world. I am always intrigued by the stone work and architecture of places like this. While there students were rehearsing for one of the many performances they have scheduled for the summer. We also visited The Edythe Bates Old Chapel which was built in La Grange in 1883 as the Episcopal Methodist Church of La Grange, Texas. It was used for worship until it was sold to The Festival-Institute in 1994. If you have never been to this wonderful place you must stop by and check it out, you won't be disappointed.
