Saskatoon Symphony Book & Music Sale - Silent Auctions

Page Contents

Introduction

This page is the portal to all Silent Auction item listings, posters and winning bids. Silent Auction posters were first created for the 2002 sale. From 1992 to 2001, all auction items were displayed on the Silent Auction table, where they were subject to damage and theft. In a successful trial run in 2002, half the Silent Auction items were physically displayed and half were displayed only on posters.
