Jocelyn Swigger, associate professor of music and coordinator of keyboard studies at the Sunderman Conservatory of Gettysburg College, will perform at 3 p.m. in Brodbeck Music Hall. She will play all of Frédéric Chopin’s Etudes, Op. 10 and 25, as well as the Three New Etudes.

Swigger has also taught at Fort Lewis College in Colorado, the Hochstein School of Music & Dance in New York, CUNY Queensborough Community College and Adelphi University. She has played as accompanist for the Manhattan School of Music, the Castleman Quartet Program, the Boys Choir of Harlem and the Juilliard School.
