Landmarks + Texas Performing Arts + The Butler School of Music
Sound in Sculpture is a partnership between Landmarks, Texas Performing Arts, and the Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music.
As the university’s public art program, Landmarks enriches the lives of students and visitors by presenting art that is broadly accessible and free to all. More than forty works of modern and contemporary art are on view throughout the 433-acre campus. The collection not only enhances the beauty of the landscape, but also supports scholarship and learning by demonstrating significant art historical trends from the past seven decades.
Texas Performing Arts
Each year, Texas Performing Arts offers a diverse season of music, theater, dance, and conversation, and during the past 35 years has presented such world-class artists as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Victor Borge, Nina Simone, Ornette Coleman, Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Van Morrison, Philip Glass, Ella Fitzgerald, and The English National Opera. We are also the proud home of Broadway In Austin, and have presented the Austin premieres of The Lion King, Wicked, Jersey Boys, Cats, and The Phantom of the Opera. Until 2007, Bass Concert Hall was also home to Ballet Austin, the Austin Symphony Orchestra, and Austin Lyric Opera.
Butler School of Music
Located in one of our nation’s most musical cities, the Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music at The University of Texas at Austin offers comprehensive undergraduate and graduate programs designed to prepare artists, thinkers, makers and teachers ready and able to make profound contributions to the future of music. It’s a privilege to come to work every day in this community of gifted and generous students, faculty and staff.
