Our picks of events on campus from Dec. 3 to Dec. 10

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

Winter Art Student Salon

This exhibit will feature works of all students taking studio art courses: not necessarily just those majoring in studio art. Organizers feel that it is important to provide opportunities for “non-majors” to have their work exhibited in a gallery setting like this. The opening reception will take place in Sheehan Gallery in Olin Hall on Saturday, Dec. 5, at 3 p.m. The exhibit will then continue in the Sheehan Gallery until Dec. 18; normal hours are Tuesday through Friday, noon-5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, noon-4 p.m.

Concerto/Aria Competition

In this annual competition, vocalists, pianists and other instrumentalists all vie for three coveted opportunities to perform their concerto or aria in front of Whitman’s symphony orchestra. Come see some of Whitman’s most talented soloists perform these difficult selections: they’ve spent all semester working on them. Friday, Dec. 4 at 4 p.m. in Chism Recital Hall. Free.

Parade of Lights

Each year, the Downtown Walla Walla Foundation hosts this parade down Boyer Avenue, featuring floats created by countless local businesses. The parade begins at the corner of Boyer and Palouse at 6 p.m., travels as far as Fifth and Alder, then circles back on Main Street to end on Boyer at about 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5. Free.

Whitman Chorale and Chamber Singers Concert

Directed by Dr. Robert Bode, Whitman’s Chorale groups make one of their last appearances of the semester. This time, they’re performing works such as Bach’s “Magnificat” and Britten’s “Rejoice in the Lamb.” Saturday, Dec. 5, 7:30 p.m. in Chism Recital Hall. Free.
