Harp students prepare for performances with choir, orchestra, chamber ensemble, harp ensemble, band, Christmas at Luther, as well as national and international tours. Music theory, ear-training, an artistic focus in harp repertoire and history, as well as technique training are taught in lessons and in harp class.
The Music Department is dedicated to providing an educational experience of the first rank, training that will prepare students for a lifetime of involvement in music, as teachers, performing artists, church musicians, arts administrators, composers, or community volunteers.
Our work is informed by an unswerving commitment to the liberal arts, intellectual rigor, a spirit of free inquiry, and the highest standards of teaching and learning. As educators and musicians, we affirm the vital importance of discipline and inspiration, and we recognize as a moral imperative our responsibility to educate the whole person—mind, body, and spirit. In all that we seek to do, we honor and affirm the transcendent, spiritual, transforming power of music and of education.
