The Luzerne Music Center's Senior Session Chipmunks also play one game a season against the Philaldelphia Orchestra Firebirds -- truly and unforgettable experience.
Luzerne Music Center is definitely a place for music students and faculty seeking opportunities to be both disciplined and creative performing artists, while living in the woods, eating healthy food, and engaging in interesting recreation, conversation and preparation for the future.
