'Teddy Bear Concert' set

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. Teddy bears collected at the concert will be distributed to the Center for the Homeless and AIDS Assist of Northcentral Indiana.

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. Additionally the program will include a tap presentation by the dance company’s kick line, to music performed by the IUSB Jazz Ensemble.

Attendees are asked to donate new teddy bears at the box office in exchange for a concert ticket. Teddy bears will be distributed after the concert.
