Each summer, LMC aims to provide world-class music instruction for passionate young people in a summer camp environment regardless of their financial circumstance. We rely on support from donors like you to make each summer the most memorable experience for our students.


Make a gift today!

Every summer, LMC provides world-class music instruction for passionate young musicians ages 9 to 18, regardless of their financial circumstances. Nearly 150 students come to the nonprofit summer camp to learn from professional musicians; of those, approximately 70 percent receive financial aid. 


Throughout the summer, students and faculty perform weekly concerts, enriching the regional music scene with piano, chamber and orchestra performances. The annual Concert Series includes nearly 30 performances on camp, including the Luzerne Chamber Music Festival that has invited special guests, including musicians from The Philadelphia Orchestra, the New York City Ballet Orchestra, LMC co-founder Toby Blumenthal and CEO and Artistic Director Elizabeth Pitcairn, Lamar Alsop, Chris Brubeck and Sarah Chang, among others.

These incredible programs are sustained by the generosity of people like you, who support the organization each year through gifts to the Annual Fund, gifts in memory or in honor of loved ones, or in-kind donations of goods and services. Your contributions support our mission of building young artists and audiences of the future.

Luzerne Music Center deeply appreciates your support. Every gift helps offer transformative experiences to deserving young musicians and further secures the future of classical music.
