Dorian Keyboard Festival

58th Annual Dorian Keyboard Festival
November 13-15, 2015

We invite all piano and organ students in grades 6-12 to participate in the 2015 Dorian Keyboard Festival. Throughout the weekend, participants have the chance to study one-on-one with the festival faculty, perform in a public or private setting, and attend recitals, masterclasses, and workshops. Outstanding festival participants will be selected to perform on the festival honor recital in Luther's beautiful Noble Recital Hall.

Guest artist Karen Kushner will join the 2015 festival faculty and perform an all-Chopin recital recital on Friday evening. Ms. Kushner will also conduct a public masterclass featuring select Luther College performers on Sunday afternoon.

Keyboard students interested in attending Luther College in 2016-17 may audition for a music scholarship during the festival weekend. (Details on the festival registration form.)
