A musical side to the Rotary auction

The Rotary Club of Golden is preparing to add a little music to the annual silent auction.

As the Golden Rotary Club prepares for the group’s annual silent auction on May 4, they have announced an exciting musical component to this year’s event.

Rotarian and well known local musician, Sue Gould, explained what was going to be happening musically at the auction this year

“I was originally approached to join up with the silent auction to put a music festival in,” she said.

Gould said she thought it was a great idea so she talked to some of the other music teachers in Golden and they were very excited about the potential for the event.

Performers will compete in two categories at the event. There is a 12 and under and an over 12 category for competitors.

“One category will be held in the morning on the Saturday and then the older group will perform in the afternoon,” she said.

Gould said the spirit of the event is to have the chance to perform.

“It is all about the performance. We are encouraging them to get up and say a little about the piece and themselves. They will be lovely performances and it will be an entertaining picture.”

Four adjudicators will decide who the winner will be from each categories. They will each receive a $100 scholarship and get the chance to play at the Mother’s Day Tea where they will be the opening act for Sarah Hagen.

There will be around 20 performers at the Rotary Auction.

“I think it is a wonderful opportunity for the students to play on the wonderful grand piano at the Civic Centre. It will also be a great day for the general public who are coming out for the auction to see what our kids are doing in this town,”  she said.
