  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!)
