Retired educator Susan Sherman Meeuwenberg of Nunica who was scheduled to speak to us about her book “Failing Retirement 101,” will not be able to join us due to illness. Instead, Alicia Whorley, who graduated from Central Michigan University with a major in music theory, will play the marimba (a xylophone-like instrument). She learned to play the marimba when she entered a drum and bugle corps known as Dimensions, which was based in Grand Rapids at the time. She’ll also share what it was like to be a percussionist in high school, when that was still a predominantly male group. She’ll also talk about her experiences with the different drum and bugle corps and the opportunities, or lack of them, for female musicians. Alicia plays regularly with a band at her church.
