As an undergrad at the University, Butterman was a member of the Glee Club, serving as secretary during the Glee Club 1986-1987 season and vice president during the Glee Club 1987-1988 season, and also was a member in 1985-1986. This gives Butterman an unusual distinction: while there have been several Glee Club members who have served as conductor, he is the only conductor of the group to also have been an officer. In 1987–1988 he was a resident of 5 West Lawn.
In addition to his roles with the Boulder Philharmonic and the Shreveport Symphony, Butterman is director of outreach for the Rochester Philharmonic.
