What Is Luzerne Music Center?
Luzerne Music Center (LMC) is a hub of incredible music, renowned instructors, and passionate young people. Founded in 1980 by Philadelphia Orchestra cellist Bert Phillips and Steinway pianist Toby Blumenthal, the tradition of Luzerne Music Center is carried on by accomplished violin soloist and alumna Elizabeth Pitcairn as CEO and Artistic Director.

Each summer, LMC presents concerts of renowned guest artists through the annual Luzerne Chamber Music Festival. In past years, the event has included musicians of the NYC Ballet and Philadelphia Orchestra, LMC founder Toby Blumenthal, Chris Brubeck's Triple Play, and much more.
