Luther music/band program

Did You Know?

  • The first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!

  • Luther graduates have gone on to universities such as Harvard, Oxford, Pennsylvania State, McGill, Queen’s and other renowned educational institutions throughout Canada, North America and the world.

  • When the College was first looking to relocate from Melville to Regina, it considered land at College & Winnipeg, College & Broad, and 23rd & Albert, finally settling on 18 acres of land on the west end of property owned by Government House, now called Royal Street.

  • The Tuck Shop for snacks was at the bottom of the south stairs going to what is now the cafeteria. The legendary beans in a cone were considered a healthier & cheaper alternative to what students purchased across the street at the Aintree.

  • Luther students, even though from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, have the opportunity to be part of tightly woven community of students, parents, alumni, teachers and staff. Typically 12% of the school’s student body originates from outside of Canada.

  • Luther College High School is recognized as one of the four best university preparatory schools in western Canada with as many as 96% of Luther graduates pursuing post-secondary educations. 

  • Do you know someone in Kindergarten to Grade 8 that would like to be part of the Luther Family? Encourage them to join the Future Luther Student program!

  • Students admitted to Luther College are not required to be Lutheran or Christian. By welcoming students of all faiths and religious backgrounds, Luther College enjoys a richly diverse student body.

Greetings new students! 

This week in our new student's blog, we thought we would tell you a little bit about the school's band program. Our band program has been very popular with students this year, and it's not hard to see why! We offer Band for credit from grade 9-12, as well as music, at Luther. The band program includes ensemble band experience, instrumental technique, music appreciation, individual & group performance. 
In grade 9, music students focus on the basics: listening skills, performance, note literacy skills, and handbells. Music and Choir are twinned at the grade 10-12 levels, with students having the opportunity to receive credit for both. We also offer IB music at the grade 11/12 level, where students study music history (western & world music), develop listening techniques through the study, analysis and examination, comparing & contrasting of musical cultures, and create music through composition, arranging & improvising performance.
 
Our music program includes wonderful music from our choirs -- we have a girls' choir (grades 9 and 10), senior choir (grades 11 and 12), gentlemen's choir (grades 9-12), AVE (advanced vocal ensemble, grades 11 and 12), as well as numerous other options like boys and girls barbershop. The choir program focuses on voice development, ear training, sight reading, basic theory, and an exploration of different styles, from jazz to classical. Right now our choirs and bands are getting ready to tour all over Saskatchewan and the prairie provinces -- the senior choir is even going to Banff! 
 
 
We have amazing facilities for all of our music programming as well, including a new band room, updated performance spaces, practice spaces, and equipment. Band and music are both very popular programs at Luther so we encourage you to sign up if you are interested because spaces are filling fast!
