Register for the Silent Auction here.

You don’t need to attend the Gala to be able to bid on items!

This year, our annual Gala acquires a genteel “joie de vivre” as we celebrate Mardi Gras with the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir. In anticipation of Fat Tuesday, festive beads, colorful floats, and New Orleans style jazz, we invite you to join us for this year’s Gala Belle Canteaux, presented in our NEW venue, the Biltwell Event Center. You can bet we’re going to get you on your feet as the parade of saints, singers, and ISC fans all go marchin’ in!

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

All guests at the Gala receive complimentary valet parking, entertainment by Pork & Beans Brass Band, hors d’oeuvres while perusing the silent auction, wine and beer, a performance by the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir, seated/plated dinner, live auction, and dancing into the evening with the Cool City Jazz Band.
