Emeritus faculty were treated to some great live music on Wednesday, May 22 at the Emeritus College Meeting Room! The twenty-five attendees present were treated to some “Old Time” string tunes from a fantastic trio of musicians: Fred Switzer, lead guitar, race car driver, Professor of Psychology; Jeff Appling, rhythm guitar, collector of rare minerals, teacher of skepticism, Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies; Jan Murdoch, mandolin, bread baker, cocktail crafter, personal assistant to two spoiled dogs. The group played for an hour then had a question and answer session after the performance.   The discussion continued during lunch at Village Bakery and Café in Pendleton following the event.
