Joan deAlbuquerque, director of bands and associate professor of music, joined the Luther faculty in 2011.

In addition to the Concert Band, she conducts the college's Wind and Percussion Ensemble.

Luther is home to one of the largest collegiate music programs in the nation, with five choirs, three orchestras, three bands, two jazz bands and more than 800 student musicians. Luther students participate in large ensembles, faculty-coached chamber groups, private lessons and master classes. Nearly 275 music majors study music theory, ear training, history, education, composition, jazz, church music and performance.
