It has been a busy Week 1 at Luther College, and the weekend doesn't stop in the social, spiritual, and musical opportunities for both faculty and staff. Many of the students are scheduling their practice time, lesson time, and making their final decisions on which elective suits them best. Our program offers some wonderful additions to large ensembles including jazz improvisation, intro to pipe organ, handbells, and many more. There is something for every brand of student who attends!
Last night was the summer's first Lawn Chair Night, a downtown Decorah event that hosts local musicians.
Our Praetorius Brass ensemble delighted the crowds with Southern charm and jazz into the mid-evening. The weather was mild and perfect for an early summer concert. LSM and its community are blessed to have such fine musicians in their midst. You, dear reader, are welcome to join us for upcoming events on campus. Check out our calendar of events!
This weekend, students, faculty and staff will meet on the Luther campus hill for their group photo, meet with faculty for their electives and small ensembles (smambles!). They will also have a chance to explore downtown Decorah with the guidance of their counselors and other staff members. Not only will they get to experience the traditional Whippy Dip, but they will also have a chance to visit the local music shop, Kephart's, to pick out any curricular or extra-curricular related music.
Rest assured, this weekend will bring more laughs and friendship that have already been forming. See it for yourself when we post on Monday's photo blast!
