Harmony Project Sooke extends much gratitude to the generous businesses and individuals who donated auction items for our Burger and Beer fundraiser at Sooke Legion on November 17th.
Brenda Parkinson conducted the live auction with flair to generate excited bids for the featured items of a Norman Nelson baton and a lunch date with Mayor Maja Tait of Sooke District Municipality.
Thanks go also to all the wonderful volunteers, young musicians and their parents, the teachers, and the attendees who helped to make the evening such a joyful success!
Among attendees was Yariv Aloni, new conductor of the Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra (second from left in the photo below), who carries on Maestro Norman Nelson’s support for young musicians.
