Every summer, around 350 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 total 2019 camp fee was $515, which included all classes and ensembles, evening activities, tuition, room and board. Optional private lessons were available at an additional cost of $45 for a pair of half hour lessons. Fees for the 2020 camp will be released when enrollment opens.
Enrollment for the 2020 Dorian Summer Camps will open in December of 2019.
