For immediate release: 10/11/2021
The Butler School of Music’s Longhorn Music Camp will be placed on hiatus for the summer of 2022. This decision was difficult, and not made without careful thought and deliberation; but like many other summer camp programs, we are faced with a complex series of logistical and financial complexities that have been exacerbated by the pandemic.
We know this decision will disappoint many, especially the teachers and students who spend their summers at the Butler School inspired by a shared passion for music-making. In its over 40-year history, Longhorn Music Camp has provided countless young musicians a space to hone their skills and learn from some of the best teachers in Texas. The hiatus will allow the school’s leadership, along with input from students and faculty, to assess the best way forward for our outreach programs in the future. The Butler School of Music remains committed to community engagement and the growth and development of young musicians across Texas.
