The Cathedral’s promoter writes:

For the third year running, St Patrick’s Cathedral, Parramatta will be hosting a Mother’s Day Concert. This is a lovely afternoon consisting of a one hour music concert, followed by afternoon tea. The music features some of the Cathedral’s very own talented singers and musicians, including organ scholars performing on the Cathedral’s impressive Norman and Beard Pipe Organ. Mothers also receive a special blessing from one of the Cathedral’s priests and a couple of musical pieces are sung to honour the Mother of our Lord.  This year, a men’s vocal group will be singing a few familiar songs to serenade and celebrate mothers. There will also be a flute and violin duo by G.P. Telemann performed, an excerpt from Francesco Durante’s Magnificat, and a traditional Spanish lullaby sung by a ladies’ vocal group. The Mother’s Day Concert is sure to be a beautiful afternoon of music in a wonderful acoustic, followed by culinary delights. So bring mum, bring grandma, bring the whole family, or come with some friends. Let’s all come together to celebrate and honour all mothers.
