Alabama Symphony Orchestra’s Stars Fell on Alabama: A Memorial Concert
Streaming virtually Friday, May 7 - Sunday, May 16
While not in person as it would normally be, you can take Mom to one of Birmingham’s lush outdoor spaces -- think Railroad Park, the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, and the like -- and treat her to this Spring Serenades performance by the Alabama Symphony Orchestra. If Mom enjoys music, she won’t want to miss this tribute performance dedicated to ASO’s patrons, board members, volunteers, and fellow music lovers that have made an impact on the organization. It will feature former ASO Music Director Amerigo Marino’s arrangement of Stars Fell on Alabama, a nod to the state we call home.

You two can cook the meal together on Sunday as a fun bonding experience, or let Mom prop her feet up and relax while you do the heavy lifting.
While you’re at Celebrate Mothers, drop by the Kids Tent and surprise Mom with a free flower. After that, try a strawberry tasting and enjoy music from Brendan Young.
