Auditions and Scholarships
Music Program Prospective Students
Luther College is committed to the idea that music is important in the lives of all students. Any student, regardless of major, is eligible to audition for a music scholarship, be in an ensemble, and take private lessons. More than half of the 1,000 students taking private lessons are majors in other areas. Students receive academic credit for these lessons.
Prospective students who wish to participate in the music program must first apply for admission at Luther College.
Scholarship auditions must take place prior to March 1 (with exception for the March 7, 2014 Music Audition Day). Learn more about Luther College Musician Auditions on the following pages:
