The Best Entertainment

Sundae + Mr. Goessl features award-winning vocalist Kate Voss (Earshot Magazine's Vocalist of the Year, two-time Seattle-Kobe Vocal Jazz Princess) and tireless virtuoso guitarist, Jason Goessl. This charming wife/husband duo incorporates humor, vintage style, interesting instrumentation, nostalgia and serious chops in their act and were awarded Best Duo of 2017 from Seattle Weekly. Bringing back the sounds from a by-gone era and spreading the joy of jazz like Johnny Appleseed, this act can be described in a single word: delightful. 

Silent Auction

In addition to the incredible music, food, and dancing, there will be an impressive silent auction that will feature irresistible items and experience packages from local businesses, artists and community members. Auction range from guided fishing trips, to local dining and entertainment events, to a variety of products and services—there is something for everyone!

Balloon Pop

There will be a balloon pop prior to the start of the live auction where every balloon is filled with a Montana scratch ticket for a chance to win cash. The grand prize balloon will be filled with $500 cash!

Dessert Auction

There will also be the opportunity to vie for your favorite delectable desserts. Choose from an irresistible array of  cupcakes, pies, and tarts you can enjoy after dinner!

Paddle Raise for Youth Orchestra and Music Education Programs

For those who don’t find the perfect item in the silent auction, there will be an opportunity to raise their paddles in support the Symphony’s educational mission and Youth Orchestra during the “Paddle Raise."

Get ready to support great programs for our youth while having the time of your life!

Each winning bid or purchase you make at our Black Tie Blue Jeans event supports the Great Falls Symphony's Youth Orchestra and many other education programs! Every year the Symphony provides scholarships for private music lessons and Youth Orchestra participation, Youth Matinee performances for thousands of local elementary school children, sends members of the Chinook Winds quintet and Cascade Quartet to teach and give outreach performances to schools in the area, and runs the Youth Orchestra and Sinfonia programs for our city's aspiring young musicians. This is all possible because of the generous support of Black Tie & Blue Jeans patrons, donations, and sponsors. So purchase your Black Tie & Blue Jeans tickets today and  get ready to treat yourself to awesome auction items and indulge in great food, music, and company!
