Snowed in this weekend and itching to do some holiday shopping? No problem. Check out the Winter Fantasy auction catalog on-line at www.motcc.org and dream about what you'll be bidding on come Monday. You can even get your bidding number ahead of time. And, if you don't yet have tickets, purchase them on-line too and have them waiting for you at the door Monday evening. See you there!
Food lovers will have plenty to choose from at this year’s Winter Fantasy auction. Like to cook? Bid on the basket of bread-making tools and ingredients, or a year’s worth of organic vegetables delivered to your door each week. Prefer to have someone else cook for you? There’s a package of restaurant gift cards and a variety of other dinner packages. There’s even a wine club with sommelier services to help you pick what to drink with your meals. Yum!
We’re so excited about the Winter Fantasy auction, but we can’t overlook the music. This is one of the best ways to get to hear these two phenomenally talented and polished MOTCC principal and prep choirs. While it is fun to watch them perform in full company operas or in their own opera, nothing can compare to hearing them sing as a choir on the main stage of the opera house. They have been working hard to present what is sure to be a beautiful concert and we can’t wait to listen.
For tickets, go to motcc.org. Remember to purchase prepaid parking as well, for only $5.
Several of the auction items at this year’s Winter Fantasy will help expand your mind or your skills, or both. Items in the camps and lessons category include several different weeks at popular children’s camps in the area, including theater camps, scientist camps, and even one for young princesses or popstars. There are drumming lessons and piano lessons with an award-winning teacher, pottery lessons, math tutoring at Mathnasium, and the opportunity to learn about travel with a local writer. And don’t forget the one-on-one coaching sessions with each of our conductors! What will you learn?
At this year's MOTCC Winter Fantasy, not only will the children’s voices transport you to another realm, but several auction items will sweep you away as well. Look for a whole section of travel-related items to bid on, including stays at local hotels like the downtown Marriott, the Dearborn Inn, and the Book Cadillac; as well as resort stays on the Leelanau Peninsula or a cabin in Paradise. There’s even passes to Walt Disney World theme parks in Florida! So many places to go…
