Supper, auction will benefit music programs

0

AUBURN — The Edward Little Music Department will hold a spaghetti supper and silent auction from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, March 27, at the Auburn Middle School, 38 Falcon Drive. The cost is $7 each person and children under 5 are free. Auction viewing will begin at 4 p.m.

All proceeds will benefit the Edward Little Music Association and the music programs at both the middle school and high school.

“The Edward Little High School music program is an important force in Auburn’s community,” said Fine Arts Department Head and Band Director Jennifer Fortin. “We perform at many civic events and support such community members as the veterans of the Twin Cities, among others. As a part of the music program, we educate the total student and plan various trips and activities that teach the students organizational skills, money skills and responsibility for oneself and others.”

Last spring, members of the band and chorus traveled to Washington, D.C. Roughly 40 students participated in band and chorus clinics with professional music conductors in the D.C. area. They also performed on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

“This is was a great opportunity for these students and it would not have been possible without proceeds like funds raised from events like the supper and auction,” Fortin said

Some of the auction items this year include tickets to sporting events and gift certificates to local area restaurants and area services. Entertainment throughout the event will be provided by small student ensembles of both instrumental and vocal musicians. Auction items will be on display and typical silent auction procedures will be the rule.
