Beverly Gandolfo taught choral music in Carroll County Public Schools for 38 years, retiring in 2015. While the majority of her career was spent at the high school level, she also taught middle school and college during that time. Her high school choirs consistently received superior ratings and district and state adjudications.

Gandolfo has been involved with community and professional theatre for nearly 50 years. Locally, she was the long-time musical director of September Song and Theatre-on-the-Hill productions, as well as for the Eichelberger Performing Arts Center in Hanover, PA.
She was the accompanist for the Carroll County Choral Society for over 30 years, and served as the Artistic Director from 2005-2018. She toured the US and Puerto Rico with Gilbert Romero and the Bittersweet Gospel Band, and was the pianist for Siempre Tango, an Argentine tango orchestra, based in the NOVA/DC area.
Gandolfo is in demand as a choral clinician, guest conductor, adjudicator and collaborative pianist.
