Ring in the Holidays with End-of-the-Season Cultural Events at ODU

The ODU Symphony Orchestra and the Wind Ensemble will perform the first Holiday Family Pops concert, to include concertmaster and violinist Vahn Armstrong performing Vivaldi's "Winter" concerto from the Four Seasons. The concert will be at 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12, in the Diehn Center atrium. The concert is free and open to the public.

"Dormitorium: An Exhibition of Film Décors by the Quay Brothers" is on display through Sunday, Dec.13, at the Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries, located at 4509 Monarch Way in the University Village. The exhibition explores the macabre fantasy world of twin brothers Stephen and Timothy Quay through the highly detailed miniature sets of their influential stop-motion animations.

"Dormitorium" represents the first time the sets (décors) of the London-based Quays have been exhibited in North America. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.
