Austin Burket, a 2015 graduate from the School of Music (BM – Violin Performance) and College of Arts and Sciences (BS – Chemistry), has just returned to the National Tour of Hamilton after a year and a half hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Austin has served as Concertmaster of the tour since its inception in 2018, and he kept busy during the time off subbing with The Florida Orchestra, contracting for Northland Church, writing and recording for podcasts and albums, and getting engaged to fellow School of Music Alum Raveena Budhu ’16.
In addition to his busy touring schedule, Austin occasionally keeps a blog on his website austinburket.com journaling his travel and experiences on tour. You can see Hamilton (and Austin) at the Times-Union Center in Jacksonville, FL from September 29 to October 17.
Austin was a student of Professor Routa Kroumovitch-Gomez.
