The Gettysburg College Choir and Camerata Tour March 10-17
The College Choir and Camerata will travel to Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. They will give concerts as benefits for local charities, and appear in local schools.
The concert program is called Transitions, and will include a variety of a cappella sacred and secular music about night and day, darkness and light, death and life, and time. This theme represents the travel aspect of our tour – traveling is transition – but also the transitory nature of being a college student, and the changeable state of our current culture and politics. We will perform music by Aaron Copland, William Byrd, Stephen Chatman, Josef Rheinberger, Thomas Morley, William Hawley and more. The Camerata, an eight-member chamber group from within the College Choir, will perform a group of lighter pieces on similar themes.

The Gettysburg College Choir is the premier choral ensemble of the Sunderman Conservatory of Music at Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania. The choir is acclaimed for performances of choral literature from the Renaissance era to contemporary music. The College Choir has 35 undergraduate singers that include both music majors and students in other majors, from biology to political science.
The Gettysburg College Choir Tour is supported in part by the Parker B. and Helen D. Wagnild College Choir Tour Fund.
Dr. Robert Natter is associate professor of music and director of choral activities at Gettysburg College, where he has taught since 1998. He conducts the Gettysburg College Choir, Concert Choir, Audeamus (upper-voice choir), and Camerata (vocal chamber music), and teaches conducting.
The Sunderman Conservatory of Music offers three degrees: a Bachelor of Music in Performance, a Bachelor of Music Education (for aspiring music teachers), and a Bachelor of Arts in Music. Honoring our role as a dynamic conservatory within one of the nation’s leading liberal arts colleges, we foster rigorous study, creativity, intellectual curiosity, and joy in music.
Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences with approximately 2,600 students that represents 34 states and 38 countries. Over 200 full-time faculty members are highly committed to the power of a liberal arts education to develop critical thinking skills, broad vision, effective communications, sensitivity to the human condition, and a global perspective; all necessary to empower students to realize their full potential for responsible citizenship. The College was founded in 1832 and is located on a beautiful 200-acre campus adjacent to the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania.
