We are very pleased to announce that our sponsors for this year’s Silent Auction & Chorale Cabaret are Camp Bow Wow (for the second year) and King’s Keyboard House (new sponsors). We’re thrilled and grateful to partner with them for our biggest fundraiser of the year!
King’s Keyboard House is located at 2363 E Stadium Blvd in Ann Arbor, and offers pianos, piano lessons, tuning, accessories, moving and repair:
Camp Bow Wow, located at 552 State Circle in Ann Arbor, provides dog day care, boarding, grooming, and lots of ways to keep your furry friend happy and healthy:
Please wish Concert Choir good luck in their trip to Chicago next weekend! We depart early Friday morning, visit the Museum of Science and Industry, and in the evening see “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”
Concert Choir will spend all of Saturday rehearsing with two other area youth choirs in preparation for a 7:00 concert at First United Church of Oak Park, IL. Part of the day will be spent in composition workshops creating (and learning very quickly!) a work that they’ll perform that evening. What an amazing experience that will be!
On Sunday, we’ll visit the Shedd Aquarium, visit Skydeck on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower for an unforgettable view of Chicago, and get in a little bowling before heading home to Ann Arbor late in the afternoon.
Putting all this together has been a major effort and accomplishment for Bonnie Kidd, Jamie Phillips, Steve Roberts of Corporate Travel, and Concert Choir members, who’ve been working hard to prepare. This is AAYC’s first tour in 11 years, and we hope there’ll be more. Touring is important for our choir members’ musical and personal development, as they learn and work together towards a sizable goal. And have a fantastic time!
The ONLINE component of AAYC’s SILENT AUCTION is now OPEN!!! This is AAYC’s premier fundraiser for the 2017-18 season. Our net goal for the fundraiser is $7,000. Proceeds from your bids directly benefit AAYC programs and offerings.
