Luzerne Music Center's 2020 Capital Campaign

For 40 years, Luzerne Music Center has provided a summer home to thousands of young musicians from around the world. We offer world-class music instruction for passionate young musicians, regardless of their financial circumstances – ensuring every student has access to high-caliber musical training and a true summer camp experience! 

We are using this time to narrow our focus on our long-planned campus improvement. Nearly century-old buildings will be replaced with safe, efficient, charming cabins for faculty and students. Newer existing buildings will be refurbished as rehearsal spaces. While our well-loved cabins have served generations of campers, it is time for us to ensure that these spaces will provide lasting memories for many generations to come.

Right now, you can make a difference for Luzerne Music Center students and have the chance for your generosity to go twice as far. For every donation made through our GoFundMe campaign, LMC board member and alumna, Angela Huang will provide a match up to our $70,000 dream goal! Your contribution will go toward providing new student cabins, each valued at $70,000, and new faculty cabins, each valued at $50,000.

This summer we suspended our operations for 2020 due to COVID-19. We will miss our campers, faculty, counselors and staff. We will miss our concertgoers and performers. We will miss you, our supporters. But we will not miss this opportunity for progress. 

With your help, when campers return to Luzerne Music Center in summer 2021, it will be to a campus transformed to provide our talented young musicians with facilities that parallel the world-class music they bring to us.

Make your gift today by clicking “Donate.”

All donations will be recognized in our Festival Program in 2021, and all gifts of $1,000 or more will be included on a special donor wall outside the Performance Hall.
