Mother's Day is all about treating mums, and mums of the powerful traditional music fan variety were certainly treated at St Albert's Hall on Sunday.
The City of Launceston hosted their annual organ performance with a series of renditions from accomplished player Andrew Bainbridge, playing the historic Brindley organ.
The Brindley Organ dates from 1861 and is the oldest of its kind in Australia. It is the only organ in the country which can be driven by hydraulic power, through the use of a water engine.
Bainbridge, a soloist, accompanist and choral director, has performed with the TSO, Tasmanian Youth Chorale, Island Brass Quintet, Virtuosi Tasmania, and Evandale Singers, among other accomplishments.
The Mother's Day event was a return to the island for him, after he moved to Melbourne in April to take up an appointment as co-artistic and administrative director of the National Boys' Choir of Australia.
The gold coin donation entry to the performance went to charity.
