We are so sorry that we had to cancel this production!
  We were all very much looking forward to it,
whether behind the scenes, backstage, onstage,
in the orchestra pit, or in the audience!

  While most of the work done so far won't come to fruition,
one beautiful thing we can share is the artwork
of our Art Director, Mark Marquis.
(above; even though he had to add "canceled" to his creation.)
 
Everyone please stay well, and hopefully
we'll all be back for a great season next year!

DREW MAYS: MORE LOVE AT THE LYRIC

Sunday, February 11, 2018, 2:30 pm

The Lyric Theatre

1800 3rd Ave North, 35203

Reserved Seating:  $30 & $25 adults, $15 students

 

  Award-winning pianist DREW MAYS has created another beautiful new program

 especially for this Birmingham Music Club concert!

 

Can you believe it?  It’s our 3rd Annual “Love at the Lyric” Concert!  

The thrilling concert by Drew Mays on Valentine’s Day in 2016

 was one of the very first events to be held in the beautiful, historic, newly restored Lyric Theatre.

    It was such a wonderful experience, we decided to present “Love at the Lyric” as an annual event,

 to be held on the Sunday before Valentine’s Day each year.

  Last year, The Warblers performed a fabulous “Love at the Lyric” concert,

and this year, Drew Mays returns on piano, with a beautiful, all-new program for us!

 

(Drew Mays is better known to many as Birmingham's beloved Ophthalmologist, Dr. Mays!) 

 

Heartfelt Appreciation to our Sponsors:

The Guild of the Birmingham Music Club

Gloria Narramore Moody

Alabama Piano Gallery and Steinway & Sons

Jemison Investment Company, Inc.
