Lutheran Summer Music (LSM) is a residential performance and training program for young musicians grades 8-12. LSM is hosted on different Lutheran college and university campuses each summer. Join over 25 nationally recognized faculty artists and a team of dedicated counselors in our supportive, academic community.
Musical excellence is achieved through rigorous study and expressed in recitals and concerts during Festival Week.
At LSM, students build their musical skills and realize their unique abilities to the fullest extent possible.
At LSM, students find a supportive community where all students can thrive. In addition to musical ensembles, students are part of small groups led by a counselors who reside in the dormitory with them. Counselors support students and plan activities that offer balance in the midst of a busy musical schedule.
Worship is central to daily life at LSM. Our chaplain provides spiritual leadership and creates a supportive community where faith – regardless of religious background – can be explored and the Lutheran church’s tradition of musical excellence is celebrated. Students have the opportunity to participate in many ways in the worship life at LSM.
The dates this year are from July 1 to July 29, 2018, at Valparaiso University, Indiana.
