Show Choir Festival
For 37 years Butler has hosted an annual Show Choir Festival for area schools. Students from all over the state travel to the city of El Dorado to perform and work with our teachers and guest clinicians. Each visiting school has an opportunity to work one-on-one with a guest clinician and to attend interest sessions around campus. At the end of the day, all schools get together to perform as a whole and individually. This year's festival took place on November 19, 2018.
