With wind chill values below zero the past few days, area residents are retreating indoors.
And they’re probably looking for ways to pass the time during these long days of winter. Following are just a few area entertainment options.
For those people not quite ready to say goodbye to the lights, decorations and other festive aspects of the Christmas season, The Durham Museum is still adorned for the holidays.
Sunday, Jan. 9, marks the final day to view Christmas at Union Station.
The long-standing tradition features the region’s largest indoor Christmas tree, a 40-foot-tall tree donated by Rosemary Synowiecki and her late husband Dinker of Omaha. It includes a special nod to Union Station’s 90th anniversary.
Christmas at Union Station also includes a special holiday exhibit.
The Durham partnered with six local organizations this season to showcase their programs. In festive displays, these institutions (El Museo Latino, Omaha Conservatory of Music, The Omaha Symphony, The Rose Theater, Great Plains Black History Museum and the Omaha Children’s Museum) present tableaus of their programming and decorations for guests to discover.
Holiday hours continue through Jan. 9 at The Durham. They are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Admission is $11 for adults, $8 for seniors 62 and over, $7 for children ages 3-12, and free for children 2 years and under.

The next performance in the Vesper Concert Series will feature Omaha native Jessica Mathaes.
Mathaes, described as “a violinist like no other,” enjoys an international career as a soloist, recording artist, educator and concertmaster. She will present a solo recital with collaborative pianist Christi Zuniga at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 9, at Presbyterian Church of the Cross, 1517 S. 114th St., in Omaha. Admission is free.
As a guest concertmaster, Mathaes has led the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, and the West Australian Symphony Orchestra. She has also been engaged with the Rochester Philharmonic, Houston Grand Opera, Houston Ballet, San Antonio Symphony, and Grand Teton Music Festival Orchestras.
In 2005 at the age of 25, Mathaes was appointed concertmaster of the Austin Symphony, becoming both the youngest and first female concertmaster of the orchestra in its over 100-year history.
As a soloist, Mathaes has been broadcast live on “Performance Today” and Chicago Public Radio, and has performed throughout Singapore on a solo and masterclass tour sponsored by the U.S. Embassy.
Growing up in Omaha, Mathaes was concertmaster of the Omaha Area Youth Orchestra and made her solo debut at age 16 playing the Saint-Saens Violin Concerto No. 3. She also was an award-winning pianist in her youth. She holds performance degrees from Rice University.
Zuniga, who will perform with Mathaes, has been the principal keyboardist with the Omaha Symphony since 2000.
The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra will present a concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 13, at the Lied Center for Performing Arts.
