Black Tie & Blue Jeans Gala – March 3!

Music is a gift that changes lives. And when you make a gift to the Northwest Boychoir & Vocalpoint! Seattle, you help create a new world for young musicians who inspire and delight audiences around the world!

Help the Northwest Choirs fund the dreams of gifted and talented young musicians by joining us at this year’s Black Tie & Blue Jeans Gala. This evening of dinner, dancing and live performances – now in its 20th year – promises to be the most fun you’ll ever have at a fundraiser.

The Black Tie & Blue Jeans Gala is the Northwest Choirs’ premier fundraising experience, supporting the choral programs and financial aid, through the Lee Raines Memorial Fund, that give members of the Northwest Boychoir and Vocalpoint! Seattle opportunities and experiences that last a lifetime.

Help us raise $125,000. Join us at Black Tie & Blue Jeans. Bring your friends, family and an appetite for fun. And don’t forget your dancing shoes!
