By Sarah Dutton and James WaughNovember 13, 2017 11:08:19Musick auction is back at the Bazaar, where it belongs.
In 2017, the auctioneer was Mike Cerniglia, and this year he’s returning to the Midwest Auction House for the first time since 2008.
The Bazaar will host a solo auction on November 19 at noon.
Cernigli is bringing back his signature style, a combination of traditional British folk music and contemporary music that is a perfect fit for the Mid-Atlantic region.
The Bazaar has a history of hosting solo auctions, but this year the first solo auction of its kind will take place at the same venue.
Cernagli will have a guest list of a few dozen, including the legendary American jazz pianist George Duke, who will auction off a collection of over 400 pieces of classical music.
The music will be auctioned off by Duke’s granddaughter, Emily Duke, and the Duke-owned Bazaar.
Carnival rides, the Midlands, and other destinations are the perfect backdrop for the solo auction.
It also will be a good time for folks to see Cernigan as he presents a range of music from his catalog.
“Musick Auction has always been a great opportunity for the region, and I think it will be very special again this year,” Cerni said.
“It is a combination that I think we’ve really come to enjoy and that I believe is a very good way to introduce the region to a lot of the great music of the world.”
Carnivals, fairs, and festivals are the ideal venue for Cerniger to present a large number of pieces, so his collection should not disappoint.
“I have lots of work that I have done over the years and have a huge catalog and a huge number of very talented people that I’ve had in my life, and that’s what I’m going to be looking at and trying to highlight,” Ceniglia said.
Cenigli’s solo auction is the first of its sort to be held at the new Bazaar in the Midatlantic.
The new Bazaars are set to open in 2019 and will be the only ones of their kind in the U.S. and Canada.
They will be located in the city of Norfolk, Virginia, at the corner of Eastern Avenue and North Street, just north of the Virginia Zoo.
“The Bazaar is the perfect place to showcase the music of this great country and to showcase that this is a great time to be a performer, an artist,” Chernigli said.
The bazaars will have an open bar, as well as a dedicated stage for performances and performances of the music, and Cernigans music will feature on the walls of the bazaar.
“This is a place where you can see the works of the masters,” Ciniglia explained.
“You can see everything from classical music to jazz and everything in between.
It is a beautiful setting.
There will be no cover charges, and it will have everything you need to have a great evening.”
The bazaar has already had several solo auctions in the past.
The auction of an ancient sculpture of a horse in 2006 attracted more than 1,000 pieces.
Chenigli and his team are also hoping to expand the Bazar into a festival.
“We are very excited about expanding the Bazaard into an international festival, and we are very proud of the progress we have made in the last year,” said Cernigi.
“A lot of this music is really new to us.
This music is new to me, and to people like George Duke.
I think that the audience will be really impressed by this music.”
Tickets go on sale Thursday, December 16 at noon, and tickets are available at www.midwestauctions.com.
