  1. So very happy to see that BUTI is continuing to grow and prosper. Kudos to Hilary and all those involved. My daughter had the pleasure of attending two summers ago before beginning freshman year at BU and found the experience to be incredibly rewarding.

  2. This is great news! I was a student the summer of 1977, in the Young Vocalists Program. Though I did not pursue singing professionally, I have been a lifetime choral singer and soloist in the Boston area ever since. The experience I had that summer has helped shape my musical life. I’ll never forget spending afternoons watching open rehearsals from the front row of the shed, singing the evening’s choral music on the lawn with my fellow YVP members, before the show. Master classes galore. We had the opportunity to sing with last year’s group at the anniversary celebration. It was wonderful!

  3. Great article! BUTI is making huge strides in the national music scene for young artists. Even if every person does not pursue music as a career, the time they spend immersed in music and fellowship stays with them for a lifetime, as Kathryn stated above.

  4. Congratulations for developing such a great environment for students. Reminds me the bucolic Norewgian Folkhighschools surroundings.

  5. My 1980 summer at Tanglewood in Lucile Lawrence’s Harp Seminar program was truly life-changing. It was a perfect experience. I would dearly love to see the return of such seminars, for adults and all ages. The Harp Seminar, at eight weeks, was the only summer program so immersive and productive. The fact that the members ranged in age from 16 to 24 or more added to its value. I wish you would restore this program, in addition to your Young Artist orchestral program.
