The Sunderman Conservatory
Home for Music at Gettysburg

The Sunderman Conservatory provides excellent, comprehensive musical training grounded in the liberal arts for students who seek to make music integral to their lives, whether as a career or a life-long avocation. As a dynamic music conservatory within one of the nation’s leading liberal arts colleges, we foster creativity, intellectual curiosity, rigorous study, and joy in music.

Sunderman is the hub for musical performance on campus, emphasizing active engagement with a broad range of musical experiences and sponsoring a full calendar of events—student and faculty recitals, ensemble performances, prominent visiting musicians, and special activities. We offer a wealth of musical opportunities for all students, regardless of major.
