Violin All State Orchestra Prep

Students auditioning for the 2024 High School Indiana All State Orchestra are eligible to participate in our first annual Butler University Violin All State Orchestra Audition Prep Day on Saturday, September 9, 2023.  This free event will include group and individual work with our Butler violin faculty, Dr. Mélanie Clapiès and Dr. Lisa Brooks, as well as lunch on the beautiful Butler University campus. This is an outstanding opportunity for violin students to put their best foot forward for All State Orchestra auditions while also experiencing a taste of violin study at Butler.

Save the date: Students who are invited to participate in the 2024 High School All State Orchestra will be invited back to campus for a performance preparation day on Sunday, January 7, 2024.
