The World Comes to Round Top

This is the second in our continuing series spotlighting the young musicians from around the world who are converging on Festival Hill for the summer music institute/concerts there.

There is a new position in the Round Top Music Festival this year. Jason Aylward, who is working toward a doctorate at the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore, Maryland, is the festival’s first assistant conductor. His duties include “helping some chamber ensembles, and acting as a resource for the conductors, to help them with how things are sounding. Also I work as the cover conductor and I would step in if, heaven forbid, someone gets sick or can’t conduct” when scheduled.
