Each Thursday, the Pioneer highlights three events happening on campus or in Walla Walla over the weekend. Here are this week’s picks:

Walla Walla Sausage Festival
See our article, “Grills and homemade goods galore at Walla Walla Sausage Festival.” DeSales High School. Friday, Oct. 2, 5 p.m.–– midnight; Saturday, Oct. 3, 11 a.m. –– midnight. More information can be found at www.wallawallasausagefest.com.

“The Oresteia”
With this production, juniors Erin Terrall, Zach Simonson and Devin Peterson decided to tackle a serious and high-stakes production: the Greek drama “The Oresteia.” Aeschylus’s trilogy is comprised of “Agamemnon,” which tells of the title character’s return to Argos and his subsequent murder at the hands of his wife Clytaemnestra, “Libation Bearers,” which follows the return of Agamemnon’s exiled son Orestes and his avengement of his father’s death and finally, “The Eumenides.” This last play, which is the focal point of the student production, follows Orestes’s trial in Athens for matricide. Friday, Oct. 2, at 10 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 3, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 4, at 4 p.m. at Harper Joy Theater.

Dave Glenn Quartet plays “Fridays at Four”
Trombonist Dave Glenn leads Whitman’s jazz ensembles, plays in the Walla Walla Symphony, and teaches jazz theory among other musical activities. He leads his quartet, composed of students Jonas Myers (piano), Marshall Baker (bass), and Robby Seager (drums), in “A Few of Our Favorites,” the first concert of this year’s “Fridays at Four” concert series, which is exactly what it sounds like. Friday, Oct. 2, 4-5 p.m. in Kimball Theater.
