Boston University Tanglewood Institute
855 Commonwealth Avenue
Boston, MA 02215
Boston University Tanglewood Institute (BUTI) is recognized internationally as one of the premier summer training programs for aspiring high school-age musicians and is the only program of its kind associated with one of the world's great symphony orchestras. Under the guidance of distinguished professionals and in the presence of
the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO), young people devote themselves to a
summer of extraordinary music making.
All BUTI programs share a common element: excellence. BUTI offers programs for all
orchestral instruments, voice, piano, and composition, ranging in
duration from two to six weeks. Depending on your area of study, you may
be eligible for more than one program, and students may apply for more
than one program with the same audition. Included with all BUTI programs is unparalleled access to all BSO and Tanglewood Music Center concerts, as many as 15 events per week.
BUTI is a magical blend of the formal and informal, of joy and hard work. No one who spends a summer at Tanglewood leaves untouched by the experience.
