Did you know?
Mrs. Hazel Ledbetter (1902-1992), a Houston socialite, in 1961 purchased the property that is now known as the Winedale Historical Center. The center included the original (Sam Lewis) stagecoach station inn.  She also purchased several buildings in Round Top. 

She offered the stagecoach inn structure to the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. When it could not be moved to Bayou Bend she sold the entire property to Miss. Ima Hogg who gave it to the University of Texas at Austin.  In the late 1960s Mrs. Ledbetter sold all her remaining Round Top properties to Charles and Faith Bybee.

Chamber Music Trio | August to April Series
Saturday August 18
The Chamber Music Trio will perform on the Festival Concert Hall stage on Saturday, August 18. Featuring Louis-Marie Fardet, cello; Chavdar Parashkevov, violin; and Viktor Valkov, piano, the trio will perform music by Haydn, Mendelssohn and Shostakovich.

Louis-Marie Fardet was appointed Cellist of the Houston Symphony in January 2015. Previously, he served as Assistant Principal Cellist for the Houston Grand Opera and Ballet since 2006, and prior to moving to Houston, he was a tenured member of L Op ra de Paris Orchestra for five years. He is founding member of the Francoeur Chamber Music Society, founded in 2015. Biography

Bulgarian violinist Chavdar Parashkevov has captivated audiences throughout Europe and the US with his sensual artistic approach, sensitivity, and virtuosic technique. He has been awarded a number of prizes from various national and international competitions. Mr. Parashkevov's diverse career has included numerous appearances with different orchestras. Currently, Chavdar combines performing and teaching careers, and plays for the Houston Grand Opera and Houston Ballet Orchestras. Biography

Viktor Valkov has been highly acclaimed by the critics as "lion of the keyboard" and "sensational." Winner of the 2015 Astral Artists National Auditions, and Gold medalist at the 2012 New Orleans International Piano Competition, Mr. Valkov's concert activities reflect a vast interest in the chamber music repertoire, as well as lesser known piano music.
