The Earles of Newtown are sure to rock the Miners Foundry with their powerhouse blend early era Harlem, New Orleans and “Hot” Jazz, and Western Swing.

The Earles bring a big band sound that combines musical prowess with period showmanship — dressed to the nines, performing sultry dance tunes, and boasting a fine three piece horn section.

Dress in your best 20’s fashion, or, in your everyday jeans. But don’t forget your dancing shoes!

The silent auction will range from one-of-a-kind works by local artists – as well as Nevada City School of the Arts students – all the way to Disney Park hopper tickets!

Other prizes include vacation rentals for skiing, summer fun, and romantic coastal get-always; a 20’x36′ Cold Frame Greenhouse, tickets to local festivals and concerts; and as always, generous donations from local restaurants, artists, jewelers, health clubs, farmers and more.

The tables at A Matter of Taste are full of treasures – and bargains. So come for the auction, and stay for the party.

Winter Revels

One of the first public charter schools in the state of California, NCSA serves a diverse population of over 400 TK-8 students, offering foundational and curriculum-integrated arts instruction, as well as music, dance, theater, film and other electives. Unlike most traditional public schools, NCSA must provide their own facilities, and thus relies on fundraisers such as A Matter of Taste to fund its highly enriched curriculum.

So every ticket is guaranteed to win support for the school – a good time for a great cause.

Doors open at 6pm with a complimentary glass of wine, two no-host bars, a variety of delicious appetizers & cocktails, music by The Earles of Newtown and hundreds of fine items in a silent auction.

Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Bid early, bid often!
