Instrumental Performance

Instrumental music students at Luther perform in three bands, three orchestras, two jazz ensembles and various chamber groups. The basics of musicianship, technique and professionalism are coached in their respective areas by a staff of conductors and studio professors. The instrumental tradition extends from 1907 when band conductor and educator Carlo Sperati formed the world famous Luther College Concert Band, the first touring ensemble at Luther. The students' horizons are broadened today by an extensive continental and global touring program.
