The School of Music’s board of advisors will host silent and live auctions Saturday, April 14, to benefit student scholarships.
The Showcase 2012: Soundsation! begins at 6:00 p.m. The black-tie-optional event will be held at the Knoxville Museum of Art and will include live music and fine dining.
School of Music students and internationally acclaimed UT faculty will provide live entertainment throughout the evening.
Event goers may bid on private musical performances by artists of the School of Music at their home or another location, a sightseeing or aerobatic flight in a World War II plane, one week in a vacation home with pool and home theater, Knoxville Opera season tickets, an original enamel and Swarovski crystal wine stopper, and a golf outing in Wears Valley.
Reservations and a minimum sponsorship of $150 per person are required. Three additional levels of donor sponsorship are offered, namely, Maestro, Impresario and Aficionado. Each level offers unique honors and rewards.
Last year, the board of advisors raised nearly $30,000 for student scholarships, helping many students to continue their education. This year, the board hopes to surpass that amount to help more students and award more scholarship dollars.
