Quinebaug Valley Singers’ auction and Holiday Concerts
STURBRIDGE – The Quinebaug Valley Singers, centered in Sturbridge, MA, announce their second annual auction, to be held Sunday, November 5 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Federated Church of Sturbridge and Fiskdale, 8 Maple Street in Sturbridge. The many high-quality items, gift certificates and services to be auctioned can be previewed at 1:30 p.m.
This is an unusual auction, benefiting an unusual organization. The Quinebaug Valley Singers, founded over thirty years ago, draw their 50+ members from many communities in south-central Massachusetts and northeastern Connecticut. They present two pairs of concerts a year, in December and May. Under the leadership of Music Director Nym Cooke, they have established a reputation for top-notch performances and unusual, creative programming.
This year’s QVS auction will feature both live bidding (led by experienced auctioneer Roland Parent) and silent bidding. A registration fee of $10, payable either at the door, in advance from any QVS member, or by contacting the auction’s co-chairs (see below), buys you a bidding paddle, and you’re ready for the fun of bidding—and the excitement of winning treasures!
But there are other special features as well. Light refreshments will be served, free of charge. And there will be live musical entertainment: the chorus will sing, and some talented instrumentalists will solo. A great time is guaranteed for all!
For further information about the auction, or to reserve a bidding paddle, contact either of the auction’s co-chairs, Linda Lambrecht (email@example.com) or Carol Curtin (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you would like to donate an item, a gift certificate, or a service, contact Jeanne Adler (email@example.com).
And come to the Quinebaug Valley Singers’ holiday concerts! You have a choice of two venues on two dates: St. Joachim Chapel, St. Anne/St. Patrick Parish in Fiskdale, on Saturday, December 9 at 7:30 p.m., or Charlton Baptist Church on Sunday, December 10 at 3 p.m. Both concerts are free, and (as always) will include yummy refreshments.
