This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Shrine’s famous display of 12,000 roses on Mother’s Day. This year the amount is “plussed” with the added plus of a concert by the Basilica Choir and Orchestra! Enjoy an afternoon in celebration of our moms, as well as the Mary, Mother of God. Hear a series of different settings of the beloved “Ave Maria” text as well as John Rutter’s magnificent setting of Mary’s own song, “Magnificat”.
The concert will include Glenn Osborne’s arrangement of Giulio Caccini’s Ave Maria for SATB choir, strings and solo instrument
