The ODU recently held a concert in the Memorial Chapel conducted by ODs Richard Cock (1967O) and John Woodland (2006K). 

The reason for these concerts is to ensure that the ODU caters for all its members, by presenting a wide range of activities, such as music, book discussions, colloquia, seminars, sport, and others. 

At the recent concert, patrons enjoyed refreshments before and after the concert to socialise, connect & engage.
