James Dick Performs With UT Symphony

Renowned concert pianist and Distinguished Alumnus James Dick teamed up with the UT Symphony Orchestra this past weekend for two performances — Saturday at Dick’s Round Top Festival Institute and Sunday at UT’s Bass Concert Hall.  

Dick showed off his Longhorn pride by donning the burnt-orange blazer he received at the Distinguished Alumnus Awards last October. 

Texas Exes executive director and CEO Jim Boon and his wife, Betty, were among those who attended. 

Though he is an immensely talented pianist, much of what makes Dick truly extraordinary is his work with the next generation. At his Festival Institute young musicians and distinguished faculty collaborate year-round, and universities and high schools regularly use his 200-acre campus in Round Top for everything from concerts to ballet performances to track practice.
