Tickets are $5 each and proceeds are used to purchase music scores, percussion instruments, and rehearsal space. The drawing for TWO 50-bottle walls will take place after intermission at the April 24 Young Artists Concert. You do not need to be present to win.

The annual Silent Auction is back! There will be a wide variety of unique items to bid on, such as spa services, gift baskets, restaurant gift certificates, car wash coupons, handmade items, all donated by local businesses and artisans.
