Amherst Early Music’s awe-inspiring live AUCTION is coming on Wednesday, July 13—NEW DAY THIS YEAR!—only 2 short days away.
We need choice offerings from your personal collection of artifacts, musical or otherwise. Original artistic creations, services (lessons of all sorts, a back rub, a home-cooked meal), books, instruments, music, CDs, good wine, specialty items (use your imagination) all make the live and silent auctions fun (and educational!), all the while supporting Amherst Early Music.
To contribute an item, please see Peter Kwiatek, or put the item (or a description of your contribution), along with a completed auction form, in a box in one of the following places: Blunt Common Room, or the Workshop Student Office (above Harris Refectory). All donations should be made by Tuesday evening at 6:30.
