Every summer, between 300 and 400 student musicians entering grades 7, 8, and 9 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 (strings only), 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 camp fee is $505, which includes tuition and room and board. Optional private lessons are available in voice, all instruments, composition, and improvisation at a cost of $45 for a pair of half hour lessons.
Enrollment is now open for the 2018 Dorian Summer Music Camps! Enrollment will close Friday, June 1st or once we reach 450 campers, whichever comes first. We anticipate reaching this number before June 1st, so we encourage you to register soon!
