The evening starts with a concert with me, the legendary Bill Lovelady and the incredible jazz bassist, Bill Coleman.
If you can’t attend the evening, we will take sealed bids so you can still take part. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to make a query about sealed bids or any other aspect of the auction.
A quick note about my recital. I visit lots of different parts of the UK giving concerts and teaching so if you don’t live near me I am still willing to accept a private recital as long as the travel involved is reasonable. If you’re interested in bidding and would like to drop me a line to ask about travel or anything else please don’t hesitate to e-mail me at email@example.com
The purpose of the auction is to raise money for vitally important computer equipment at my son’s school. I’m on the Friends of Chadlington School Committee so am very much involved in this substantial fundraising effort.
Many thanks for reading this!
