Connor Guy

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

Romeo and Juliet
See reporter Caitlin Hardee’s preview of the production here. The theater department sets Shakespeare’s classic tragedy in a neo-punk, skateboarding culture. All shows are in the Harper Joy Theater. Free with a Whitman theater pass, though many shows are already sold out because of higher demand during family weekend. Show times are Thursday to Saturday, Oct. 22 to 24 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 25 at 2 p.m.

Fall Sampler Concert
Each year, the music department’s various groups and ensembles collaborate for this family weekend concert. Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Jazz Ensembles, Chorale and Chamber Singers will all take the stage, showcasing the various pieces they’ve worked on so far this year.

Faculty Recital for Cello and Piano
Dr. Edward Dixon, cello, and Dr. Eugene Flemm, piano, will perform together for the first time since 1987 when they performed at the Carnegie Recital Hall in New York. Dr. Flemm is of the music faculty of Clearwater Christian College in Tampa, Florida. The duo, who have been friends since they attended graduate school together at the Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music in the early 1980s, will also be playing at Walla Walla University and Eastern Oregon University. Dr. Dixon has been on the Whitman College music faculty since 1990. Sunday, Oct. 25 at 3:30 p.m. in Chism Recital Hall. Free.
