Luther College offers five Dorian festivals and two summer camps every year. Started in 1949 by Weston Noble, the Dorian program has allowed over 90,000 middle and high school students to experience what it means to make music at Luther College.
Each year, hundreds of student musicians attend Luther's week-long Dorian Summer Music Camps and study with Luther professors, perform in large ensembles, participate in workshops and classes, and have fun living and learning together on Luther's beautiful campus. Band camp, orchestra camp, choir camp, and piano camp are all included in one wonderful week that we call Dorian Summer Music Camp. This is not your typical music camp, as students are able to take art classes, dance classes, and theatre classes in addition to their musical classes and ensembles. In the evenings, students partake in fun social activities, outings, recitals, and more.
