Time flies when you're having FUN!

The last few weeks of BUTI flew by in a continuous whirlwind of concerts, recitals, rehearsals, trips, classes, programs and events... As each program came to an end, the BUTI students wowed us- as always- with their final performances, which beautifully displayed their amazing musical talents as well as the immense progress they have all made as young musicians during their time here. We saw the YAWE and YAO perform in the magnificent Seiji Ozawa Hall, the YAVP and YAO dazzle the enormous crowds at the annual Tanglewood on Parade festival in the esteemed Koussevitzky Music Shed, and select students from various programs show off their talents at the BUTI Honors Recital. The YAPP and YAHP gave beautiful final recitals, the YAVP students lit up the stage with their own renditions of beloved opera scenes, and the YACP showed off their own original compositions performed by their fellow BUTI musicians!

The multitude of Tanglewood, BSO, TMC, and BUTI staff performances continued as well, and the Student Life Staff filled in any free time with dances, carnivals, hikes, yoga trips, sports tournaments and more! Not to be outdone by the BUTI Workshop students, the Large Program students also starred in a short music video (posted below). The annual Summerbook was published and a Summerbook DVD produced!

We were very sad to see everyone leave as the campus emptied and the summer came to an end, but were - and are - very proud of the amazing accomplishments of each and every student. The entire staff sends a heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS to all of the BUTI students for all of your hard work and dedication to your musical studies throughout the summer. We wish you the best of luck in the coming school year and hope to see you back at Tanglewood next season!

Thanks for an amazing summer!
