Back by popular demand! The Fall 2015 Silent Auction features a diverse and exciting array of products & services, donated by our generous members and friends.

The Auction will be held before, during, and after the Monteverdi Vespers concert on Sunday, 22 November.

You will be able to admire and bid on our amazing items (and hover protectively nearby, poised to up your bid and compete for your desired prize) before the 3:00pm concert, as well as during intermission, and again during the beginning of the post-concert reception. Then we’ll announce the winners during the second part of the reception. Bidders need not be present to win. But we hope you’ll stay and enjoy the fun!
