The Butler Society

The Butler Society represents a dedicated community of our supporters whose contributions help the School offer the very best enrichment and professional growth opportunities to students and faculty.

The Butler Society acknowledges the generosity of all donors to the school during each calendar year.

The continued financial support of members of the Butler Society allows us to achieve our goal to be the best music education program in the country. For over 100 years, The University of Texas at Austin through the Butler School of Music, has provided opportunities for students to study, train and perform with some of the world's most celebrated and accomplished faculty, ensembles and organizations.

Members of the Butler Society are the key to the success of this vibrant music program. Thank you for making the successful launch of tomorrow's music performers, teachers, composers and scholars part of your giving plan.
