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

Music Profile Form and Auditions

Prospective music students are required to submit the MUSIC PROFILE FORM so that our faculty can better understand your musical background and training. This must be completed before a faculty interview or audition is scheduled.

Auditions are required for all students interested in pursuing a music degree. To schedule an audition, faculty interview, or private lesson, please contact Diane MacBeth (macbeth@gettysburg.edu or 717-337-6131). Auditions must be scheduled three weeks in advance and an existing audition appointment may be rescheduled one time due to an extenuating conflict. For all other inquiries regarding the music program or audition requirements, please contact Dr. Teresa Bowers (tbowers@gettysburg.edu or 717-337-6134).
