Gala Bel Canto

We don’t need One Thousand and One Nights to convince you of the impact of the choral arts on our community — just One Night!

The Indianapolis Symphonic Choir believes that the arts play an integral role in cultivating a well-rounded education. These are just a few of the many education & community engagement opportunities made possible through funds raised at our annual Gala.

  • Through our Spotlight Choir initiative, we invite local high school choirs to perform side by side with our 150-voice volunteer choir at our annual Festival of Carols, one of the season’s most popular concert series.
  • We are committed to the future of choral music and hold an annual Christmas Carol Commission Competition. Young composers submit their work to win a $2,500 cash prize and the opportunity to have their winning piece premiered by the Symphonic Choir at Festival of Carols.
  • In partnership with Butler University, we provide a two-year full tuition waiver and stipend for a Conducting Fellowship.

The evening takes place at the Biltwell Event Center and includes complimentary valet parking, cocktail hour with passed hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, a performance by the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir, a seated-plated dinner, and dancing to the Cool City Jazz Band.

Proceeds from the annual gala benefit education and community engagement programming.
