Pursue Your Passions


The Sunderman Conservatory of Music is a dedicated place for music within a liberal arts environment, a Conservatory embedded within a rich intellectual community. Our students are free to pursue their passions—from concertos to calculus, symphonies to sociology, and gamelan to German. It’s why many of our students also choose to double major. At Gettysburg College, budding musicians truly make the most of the distinctive undergraduate opportunities available to them—and by the time they graduate, Sunderman alumni are prepared to excel within top graduate programs or in an array of career fields.
