The South Bend Symphonic Choir and director Marvin V. Curtis, dean of the Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts at IU South Bend, will present the annual “Teddy Bear Concert” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. In its fifth year, the “Teddy Bear Concert” is designed to support two local charities.

The “Teddy Bear Concert” will showcase the choirs of IU South Bend presenting traditional holiday repertoire with selections by the South Bend Symphonic Choir, the IU South Bend Chamber Choir, Chorale and Gospel Choir with a finale featuring the combined voices of these four ensembles. Along with dancers from the IU South Bend Dance Company, the combined choirs will present “Twas the Night Before Christmas” during the conclusion of the concert.
