International Touring

Jazz Orchestra International Tours

Music ensemble tours provide an enriching and immersive opportunity for students to learn actively, live purposefully, and lead courageously through the sharing of music and local culture.  Ensemble tours also promote the musical excellence of the Luther College Music Department to audiences around the globe. 

Every four years, the Luther College Jazz Orchestra travels internationally.  The ensemble has embarked on tours to Brazil in 2008, 2012, and 2016. 

In Brazil, students engage with local citizens and culture to experience the music, food, and art of the nation. The rich cultural exchange provides an invaluable opportunity for students to connect with the larger world, through both new experiences and the familiarity of performing for appreciative audiences. 

Jazz Orchestra was scheduled to travel to Brazil from May 26 through June 12, 2020.  Due to the global health pandemic caused by the coronavirus, that tour was canceled.  The next international touring opportunity for Jazz Orchestra will occur in 2024.
