Sunderman Conservatory Admissions

The Sunderman Conservatory of Music offers a superb and distinctive music education, deeply-rooted in a liberal arts setting. Therefore students wishing to enroll in a music degree program must be admitted to Gettysburg College by the Admissions Office through the standard application process, and must be accepted for study by the Sunderman Conservatory faculty through an audition.

Programs Offered at the Sunderman Conservatory

“Take advantage of everything the Conservatory has to offer: join ensembles, attend recitals, and meet with faculty. Also, build relationships with your professors and classmates. Several of those relationships will last long after you graduate.”

Professor Amanda Heim and a student talking to each other
“I would be remiss to not include both Prof. Avner Dorman and Prof. Russell McCutcheon as my most influential faculty mentors. I can’t begin to say all of the lessons that I’ve learned and applied from both of them. Above all, they taught me the value of a keen sense of practicality and when to leave that practicality behind.”
