This enchanting event will take place on Saturday, May 11, at 7 p.m. at Lone Star College–Montgomery in The Woodlands. Just in time for Mother’s Day, “Letters to Mom” will showcase the unbreakable bond between mothers and their children through heartfelt performances and soul-stirring music. Guests can expect an evening filled with captivating melodies, powerful words, and a celebration of the joys, challenges, and unconditional love that define the journey of motherhood.

“We believe that mothers deserve to be celebrated every day, and ‘Letters to Mom’ is our way of paying tribute to the incredible women who have shaped our lives,” said Matthew Everett, president and founder of The Woodlands Diversion. “This concert is a unique opportunity for individuals to express their appreciation for their mothers, grandmothers, and all mother figures in their lives.”

In celebrating “moms,” the program is composed entirely of works written by female composers, including Germaine Tailleferre (1892-1983), Minako Tokuyama (born 1958), Rachel Portman (born 1960), Jessie Montgomery (born 1981), and Caroline Shaw (born 1982).

What better way to pay tributes to motherhood than to honor the gifts of their daughters!”
