We all love our mums and by gifting the experience of a live performance you'll offer her a precious time to share and remember - especially if you've bought a second ticket so you can accompany her!

Imagine giving mum a ticket to be one of only 150 guests to join the winner of the prestigious Sydney International Piano Competition for thrilling once-in-a-lifetime experience, seated on The Joan’s Concert Hall stage around the piano. And it’s not just any piano, it’s the jewel in the crown of The Joan’s impressive 33-piece piano collection, the “Rolls Royce of pianos”, the Imperial Bösendorfer, handcrafted in Austria, and the largest of all concert grand pianos, favoured by artists world-wide, both classical and contemporary, including musicians such as Tori Amos.

Andrey Gugnin received a first class musical education in both Russia and now Italy, and is quickly notching up performance credits with some of the world’s leading orchestras in famous concert halls around the globe.   Andrey won the first prize in the Sydney International Piano Competition in 2016, also taking the accolades for best overall concerto, best 19th or 20th century concerto, best violin and piano sonata.

A unique experience for mums who like their music big, bold and classical. Andrey Gugnin performs Bach Adagio in G Major BWV 968; Schubert’s Piano Sonata No.17 in D Major D.850; Shostakovich Piano Sonata No.1 Op.12; Desyatnikov "Reminiscences of the Theatre" (1985); Michael Kieran Harvey 48 Fugues for Frank Zappa No.6: G-Spot Tornado (2009) and Stravinsky Trois Mouvements de Pétrouchka.

And if music isn’t mum’s thing it's not too late to pick up a great four or six show subscription to The Joan for Mum this Mother’s Day – give her the gift of time for herself and the enjoyment and mindfulness that come with a night out and a live performance!

For the art lover, take mum to Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest at Emu Plains and enjoy the free Autumn exhibition – Visions of Utopia, Hill End: Seven Decades and Rochelle Summerfield: A Wayfarer on the Nepean and a lovely morning tea or lunch at the onsite Café at Lewers. Bookings and reservations can be made for Mother’s Day for 8am, 10am, 12noon and 2pm by calling the café 4735 4265.

We wish mothers everywhere a happy Mother's Day for Sunday 14 May, and we look forward to welcoming you to The Joan and Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest to celebrate.
