The Mother's Day concert is a new local traditionJohn MacInnes
Mothers will be treated to a special concert by the Warrnambool Symphony Orchestra this Sunday.
The 12th annual Mother's Day Concert will be held at St Joseph's Church, starting at 2.30pm.
Orchestra president John MacInnes said a lively program has been organised by conductor Angus Christie.
"There's a new Ken Stott composition for solo Double Bass and orchestra called 'Ibizan Sunset' and an arrangement of 'Watermill' to be played on the piccolo," he said.
"Soprano Amy Williams will sing 'I Dreamed a Dream' and there will be works from Grieg, Mendelssohn, Mussorgsky, Sir Arthur Sullivan and more.
"Why not treat mother to a special Mothers Day family lunch and then come and enjoy this marvellous concert in the afternoon?"
Violin player, piano teacher and mother of three boys Katie Ezzy is particularly excited to be performing Con te Partiro, by Francesco Sartori.
"It's one of my favourite pieces of music," she said.
"It is nice to be able to perform for all of the other mums."
Tickets for the concert are available from the Lighthouse Theatre or at the door.
