LDS Mothers Day Concert at Provo Tabernacle

PROVO, UTAH -- Vocalist Ruth Ellis will perform "Mother Love: A Celebration of Motherhood" at the Provo Tabernacle on May 11, beginning at 7:30 p.m. This Mother's Day tribute will celebrate the music that expresses the gratitude, admiration and love we feel, that is best expressed in music. Featured songs by LDS composers Crawford Gates, Laurence Lyon, Kay Hicks Ward, Royce Twitchell, Deborah Hamilton, Annie Jones and Robert Cundick will focus on the different times in a mother's life. Love songs, lullabies, songs about naughty children and biblical women will make this an evening of shared laughter and tears.

Ruth returns to Utah with her husband and four children after living in New York for 14 years. "I SO loved the city," she said. Ruth left for New York at the age of 19 to attend The Manhattan School of Music where she earned her bachelor's and master's degrees in music. The move back to Utah came after her husband Doug's job, art director for the TV hit sitcom, "Spin City", moved to Los Angeles.

"We needed a new job and a new place to live. So, it was 'Westward Ho!' said Ruth. "We bought a house and two cars in two weeks' time and commenced reinventing ourselves in suburbia." Doug is now the technical director for BYU's many theatre productions. Ruth has founded the Ruth Ellis Vocal Academy.

The pianist for the "Mother Love: A Celebration of Motherhood" concert will be Dian Baker. She had partnered with the late cellist Roger Drinkall for 12 years in the acclaimed Drinkall/Baker Duo and was recognized for 11 years as an official Artistic Ambassador for the United States.

Tickets for the May 11 performance are $5 per person, $4 for seniors, or $15 for a family pass and are available at Best in Music stores or at the Provo Tabernacle Door.
