Dorian Festivals and Summer Camps

Dorian Festivals

The Dorian Festivals are a phenomenal opportunity for student musicians and their teachers to come to the Luther College Campus and experience two days of fantastic music-making. The festivals include chances for students to play in large ensembles, have one-on-one lessons with our faculty, participate in masterclasses and sectionals, hear Luther student ensembles perform, and more.

Dorian Summer Music Camps

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 theater classes in addition to their musical classes and ensembles. In the evenings, students partake in fun social activities, outings, recitals, and more. We anticipate opening enrollment for the 2022 Dorian Summer Music Camps in December of 2021.
