Music at Mercersburg ranges from symphonic works to show tunes to computer-generated original compositions. Both in and out of the classroom, student musicians find plenty of outlets for their creative voices. In the process, they gain confidence, explore fresh ideas, and discover new means of expression.

Students participate in performing groups, many of which offer course credit. Student recitals are held at the end of each term. In addition, private lessons in voice and many instruments are available to students at any level of ability. And academic courses teach music history, music theory, composition, and more.

Teaching spaces include the Hershey Chorale Room and Boone Recital Hall.
