The Event

Savor Gourmet Food
An abundance of delicious hors d’oeuvres are beautifully prepared by Angelica Baltz, of Angelica’s Catering, and served throughout the silent auction. Sweets, coffee and tea end the evening.  Guests at last year’s AMOT were delighted with the beauty, abundance and taste of the delectable food prepared fresh by Angelica and her team; we are fortunate to have her back again this year and look forward to seeing, and tasting, the delights she will prepare for us!

Wine Tasting & Beverages
Local and regional wineries provide wine for tasting from 6 to 7:30. The no-host bar features an assortment of beers from Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. as well as fine wines and non-alcoholic beverages. Please remember to designate a driver. Cab service will be available at the end of the evening.

Bring Home Treasures
Local and regional businesses generously donate hundreds of wonderful auction items to our silent auction, and our live auction offers plenty of excitement. Our Auctioneers are NCSA School Director Holly Pettitt and Center for the Arts Executive Director Julie Baker, both NCSA parents, and they keep the bidding lively! Check out the Auction Item page for an up-to-date list of all items, and the Donate page to contribute an auction item.

Be Merry
Enjoy the beautiful music of Nevada City School of the Arts own talent. NCSA music teacher and parent Heather Grove along with parent Odile Meister will provide music throughout the silent auction.  Following the live auction, dance in the Stone Hall to the tunes of  DJ Robin, another NCSA parent.

All in the name of Education
While you enjoy the food, drink, music, and auction, take comfort knowing that the spirit of generosity that supports A Matter of Taste, also supports the unique programs that make the Nevada City School of the Arts the extraordinary school that it is.
