Auction to Benefit Local Chorus

STURBRIDGE – The Quinebaug Valley Singers, centered in Sturbridge, MA, announce their third annual auction, to be held Saturday, November 3, from 7 to 9 pm at the Federated Church of Sturbridge and Fiskdale, 8 Maple Street, Sturbridge, MA. The many high-quality items, gift certificates and services to be auctioned can be previewed at 6:30 pm.

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 concerts two times each 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. There is no registration fee, but you must fill out a registration form for a numbered paddle in order to enjoy the fun of bidding – and the excitement of winning treasures! Registration will begin at 6:15 pm.

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 several talented musicians will solo. A great time is guaranteed for all!
