Music and Worship Camp - Summer 2018

The LU School of Music Worship Camp is available to students from grades 9 through 12 who love to worship through singing or playing an instrument (Students completing their 8th grade year – rising 9th graders – are also welcome to attend). Students who play a band or orchestra instrument will enjoy a unique experience performing in a worship orchestra and receiving instruction particular to their instrumental discipline (strings, woodwinds, brass, or percussion).  Private lessons are available upon request for an additional charge of $30 per lesson.

What to Expect

Instruction in Biblical foundations for worship, worship leading techniques, improvisation, and music theory will be provided. As part of the music theory class, students will learn how to read and write charts for worship. Each student will participate on an assigned praise team and receive daily group coaching as a full team and in vocal and instrumental sectionals.

Those participating in the Worship Orchestra will have daily rehearsals with the worship teams and in sectionals. Worship and Music students not playing in the Worship Orchestra will participate in the mixed choral ensemble to learn concepts of choral worship leading techniques. Worship campers will enjoy a busy, fun-filled week of rehearsing, learning more about music and worship, and making new friends.

Summer 2018 Music and Worship Camp Dates:


Music and Worship Camp Auditions

Each camper must submit an online audition video prior to arriving at camp. All campers should perform two solo selections on this video. Instrumentalists must also perform two scales of your choice. This audition will be used to place students into worship teams or for seating in the Worship Orchestra. Our desire is to get to know you and your gifts! Memorization is welcome, but not required.


Performance Opportunities

The Worship Camp holds two performances on the final day of camp, which are open to the public. Parents and relatives are encouraged to attend.


Saturday Performances

Worship campers will perform in one of the morning Worship Programs. Student worship groups will lead worship during these worship programs. Each student's Worship Program will be presented on Saturday morning. The time of presentation will be established during the week of camp after students have been placed in their worship team.

10 a.m. & 1 p.m. – Select worship groups will lead worship with the Worship Orchestra during this Afternoon Worship Service and Concert for the camp. All worship campers will participate in the worship service singing as part of the Camp Mixed Worship Chorus.
