Every summer, between 300 and 400 student musicians entering grades 10, 11, 12, and recent high school graduates spend a week at Luther College to study, explore, and perform music under the mentorship of Luther's music faculty.
The daily camp schedule includes ensemble rehearsals for band, choir, and orchestra, instrument-specific workshops, a wide variety of classes, and private lessons, offset by evening talent nights, concerts, and a variety of sports. The camp ends with a grand concert in Luther's Center for Faith and Life.
Students live in residence halls on campus and eat their meals at the college cafeteria. A dedicated, caring group of college-age counselors supervise the halls and daily activities.
The 2018 total camp fee was $505, which includes tuition and room and board. Optional private lessons were available in voice, all instruments, composition, and improvisation at a cost of $45 for a pair of half hour lessons. Fees have not yet been set for 2019.
Registration will open mid-December for the 2019 Dorian Summer Camps.
