About Me

Jay Hershberger is currently professor of piano at Concordia College in Moorhead, MN.  A performing classical musician--something he knew he wanted to pursue beginning in kindergarten--Jay's professional concert life has taken him to three continents thus far, and he hopes to add three more to his touring experience sometime in his life, although he has no ambition to play anywhere in Antarctica.

As a college professor committed to the liberal arts tradition of learning, Jay's interests reach beyond music into the realms of history, politics, religion, literature, and culture, and has led him to teach in the classroom outside his normal discipline of music.  But he is a layman, and knows only enough to be extraordinarily dangerous, or just tick everyone off.

Jay is married to Cindy, the best woman in the world.  She would have to be to stay married to Jay.  They share a love of Jane Austen, JRR Tolkien, living in the country, and of course, their children and grandchildren.  As Christians, they still have not figured out why God would ever want to adopt them as one of His sons and daughters, but they are grateful nonetheless.
