Let's honor Mothers' Day together with music celebrating love! You’ll hear compositions from Bach to the Beatles, inspired by and written on themes of love of friends, family, neighbors, country, and peace, and reminding us that connections to each other are gifts to treasure.

This event is sponsored by the Wilmington chapter of the American Guild of Organists. Visit for details. Admission is free! I hope to see you on May 8.
