The annual Pennsylvania Music Education Association (PMEA) Conference features research presentations by leading professors and doctoral students. That is—of course—unless you’re Gettysburg College standouts like Eddie Holmes ’18 and Alex Schweizer’17.
The Sunderman Conservatory of Music undergraduates were chosen to present two of the four total presentations at the prestigious conference. In fact, Holmes’ research proposal was ranked second in all of Pennsylvania, while Schweizer’s was ranked third—a remarkable accomplishment and a testament to Gettysburg’s music education program.
In addition, the PMEA Research Board also asked their mentor, Sunderman Prof. Brent Talbot, to serve as this year’s Invited Researcher—a position reserved for the Commonwealth’s most distinguished music academics.
