Dorian Vocal Festival
January 7-8, 2024
Join us for the 74th annual Dorian Vocal Festival! This two day event is open to juniors and seniors that have been nominated by their school directors. While on campus, you will have the opportunity to sing in a 900 person choir, rehearse with Luther’s music faculty, and participate in sectionals with singers from hundreds of schools around the mid-west. Come and experience the vibrant community of Luther College by eating meals in the caf, spending time in different areas of campus, interacting with current Luther music students, having lessons in Jenson-Noble Hall of Music, and performing in our beautiful Center for Faith and Life.
If you are a senior who is interested in attending Luther, you may sign up for a scholarship audition during this festival weekend!
Registration will stay open from Wednesday, September 20th until Wednesday, October 25th. This year, we will be able to accept online credit card payments for festival fees, in addition to receiving payments by check and/or cash.
Nominations for 2024 are now closed.
