ONLINE REGISTRATION NOW OPEN! REGISTER HERE
Young Artists Division Residential program runs from JULY 7 – 21, 2019
About the Young Artists Division Residential:
The Young Artists Division Residential adds an overnight component (24/7) to the commuter option where students will stay on the UT campus in the dorms.
The residential option is open to high school musicians ages 14 – 18 with advanced proficiency. Students will work with amazing workshop faculty and visiting guest artists, perform in masterclasses, attend presentations from artists visiting from all around the world, and as a team, residential students will embark in activities specialized just for them.
During the weekday students will be mixed in with the Young Artists Division Commuter activities. The rest of the day (evenings and weekends) residential students will have scheduled music and non-music activities on and near campus. Students will meet other musicians from all around Texas and possibly the country!
NOTE BEFORE ENROLLING:
ALL Young Artists Division Residential students are REQUIRED to stay on campus, attend ALL days of the workshop, and attend all group activities from check-in to check-out to participate. NO EXCEPTIONS.
All instrumentalists are accepted and welcome in the program (string, woodwind, brass, guitar, piano, harp); however, this option is reserved for advanced students ages 14 – 18 only.
There will be a limited number of spots for the residential option. Once capacity is reached a waiting list will be made.
If for any reason we do not have enough students enrolled we will not be able to move forward with the residential component. Decisions will be made the last week of April after the registration deadline. If the residential division does not move forward parents will be notified.
