This soft and gorgeous twin-sized quilt is looking for a home. YOUR home! "Four Patch" is handmade, reversible, and measures 52" x 85". It has a special Ann Arbor Youth Chorale connection too: it was made by the mother of Ruth Datz (one of AAYC's 1987 founders and first choir directors), an accomplished quilter from western Pennsylvania. The "Four Patch" quilt has a hand-sewn inscription of Ruth, her mother, and the Ann Arbor-area friends who finished the quilting.

What better way to support AAYC?

Place your bid by visiting our website (, clicking on the Auction link, then going to the “Home & Garden” category. All proceeds go to support our phenomenal children’s choirs!

AAYC’s Online Auction offers four voice lessons (45 min each) with local singer and performer, Melissa Bruzzano. To bid on these lessons, click on the red Auction button, then on the “Lessons” category.

Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been singing for years, you can fine tune your instrument with voice lessons. You’ll work on technique, range, stamina, confidence, ear training and more to take your singing to whole new level! It’s a great way to prepare for auditions too!

Melissa has been a singer-songwriter for over 15 years. She is classically trained, but her solo performances are squarely in the folk arena with hints of other genres. Melissa offers vocal training at her Burns Park home.
