Dear Butler School Community:

As part of our ongoing efforts to control the spread of COVID-19 in the Austin, UT and Butler School communities, the music building will remain closed to the public through the Spring of 2021. Check out our calendar for virtual streamed events! 

Access to the building will be limited to Butler School students, faculty & staff via key card.  This limited access will be based on the city of Austin's current risk stage levels, and may vary considerably throughout the semester.  For more information on building access and all other COVID-related policies and procedures visit the COVID-19 section of the website. 

Thank you to our patrons for your support of the Butler School through these unprecedented times, and your continued patience. We can't wait to see you at a performance sometime soon.
