Blow that shofar like you mean it!
Think you're beastly enough to play the shofar at vespers? Prove it -- email us today and we'll hook you up with a slot to put your talent on display for the whole university. Have no idea what I'm talking about? Keep reading...
For those of us who arrive on time for vespers (a distinct minority to be sure), we are greeted each week with the playing of the shofar. No, I didn't just sneeze. That's a real thing. According to the exceptionally useful wikipedia, I have ascertained that a shofar is "a horn, traditionally that of a ram, used for Jewish religious purposes."
The blowing of the shofar apparently is used in synagogue services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. How this tradition got its start as part of the WWU vespers, I have no idea. But it's crazy old school (hard to get more old school than the Old Testament) and now's your chance to get in on the tradition!

Vespers is the place where people can come on Friday evenings to let go of the week’s stressful burden and welcome in the "Aaahhhh" of Sabbath rest. The music for this service is tailored to cultivate that peaceful atmosphere as we welcome in the Sabbath each week. Musicians with a heart for worship have the opportunity to contribute to the atmosphere with both their passion and their talents. If you sing or play any instrument there are ways to be involved with music for Vespers, whether it be joining or forming a praise band or sharing with a special music. If you would like to be involved with music for Vespers, contact Sara Barnett at email@example.com or go to wallawalla.edu/get-involved and sign up on our Volunteer database.
