Boston University Tanglewood Institute (BUTI) is a program of Boston University College of Fine Arts. It is recognized as one of the nation's premiere summer training programs for aspiring young musicians ages 10–20 and is the only program of its kind associated with one of the world’s great symphony orchestras. Founded in 1966, BUTI is a result of the vision of Erich Leinsdorf, music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) at the time, who invited BU to create a summer program for high school musicians as a counterpart to the BSO’s Tanglewood Music Center. Scores of BUTI alumni have gone on to illustrious careers in music, including dozens who perform in the top orchestras in the country.
Each summer, BUTI accepts a select group of talented high school and early college-age musicians, inviting them to BU’s 64-acre campus in Lenox, MA, for training programs in orchestra, voice, wind ensemble, piano, composition, and harp, as well as workshops for individual instruments and string chamber music. The class of 2018 was selected through a rigorous application and audition process.
