The LSM Alumnus Scholarship is automatically added to any music scholarship earned by alumni of LSM through Concordia's scholarship audition process. Music scholarships are awarded based on talent, character, and instrumentation need. Non-music majors have the same eligibility for music scholarships as music majors. In some cases, non-majors are awarded at the highest level.
Concordia University Irvine is a Lutheran university in Orange County, California (app. 1,500 undergraduates; 4,500 total students) that provides big opportunities for musical performances and study. A recent international tour had the Concordia Choir and Sinfonietta marking the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in Wittenberg, Leipzig, Berlin, and Salzburg. The Concordia Wind Orchestra will join the international commemoration of the 75th anniversary of D-Day with concerts in Paris, Omaha Beach (on D-Day) the Normandy American Cemetery, and cathedrals in Caen and Amsterdam. Music is one of the most prominent aspects of Concordia's identity, as displayed in our recent sold out performance of Reformation 500 in Segerstrom Concert Hall. The student musician population, environment, and faith-based approach at Concordia is very similar to the LSM experience.
