GREAT FALLS — Angela Costly and Grant Harville visited KRTV to talk about "Black Tie Blue Jeans," billed as the Great Falls Symphony's biggest party and fundraiser of the year.

It will be on Friday, March 6, beginning at 5:30 pm at the Heritage Inn. Individual tickets are $75, and can be bought by clicking here.

Each winning bid or purchase made at 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.

The event will feature a silent auction, a balloon pop, and entertainment from "Sundae + Mr. Goessl." The symphony website says they are "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."
