Seminary Still Actively Fund Raising for Overall Costs of $1 Million

One year ago, “when the Music, Gettysburg! steering committee set a goal of contributing $100,000 to Phase I of Gettysburg Seminary’s $1.8 million Chapel Renewal Project, we knew it was a stretch,” said Steering Committe member Jean LeGros. “Yet we also were confident that members of the community and beyond would step up to help meet the goal. And you did!,” she added.

Music, Gettysburg! and the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg is delighted to announce that more than $100,000 in gifts and pledges have been contributed by Music, Gettysburg! patrons toward the important first phase of major renovations to its 70 year old chapel, the host home of the 15-20 annual concert series.

You can contribute now:

Music, Gettysburg! is, has been and will continue to be a primary patron of the cchapelreno.jpghapel’s performance space. Your gifts for chapel renewal are an expression of appreciation to the Seminary for inviting the concert series to use the chapel for the past thirty-two years. Phase I of the chapel renewal project ($1 million), now complete, supports sustainability and comfort: refurbished pews, a new hardwood floor, and twenty-five geothermal wells for constant heating and cooling. Phase II ($.8 million), to begin in the next few years, will support accessibility: ADA (Americans with Disability Act) compliant restrooms, doors, staircases and elevator. Other initiatives planned for the future include a new common area in the undercroft level, a rehearsal room, and an enhanced narthex/lobby area.

The patrons and friends of Music, Gettysburg! who have given generously toward these projects promises to improve the quality and comfort for performance and expand the capability to welcome music lovers for years to come.

Those who wish to make a gift may still do so at a secure website:   or call 717-338-3011 for a member of the development staff.
