The Euclid Quartet is the Raclin School of the Arts’ resident quartet. They will perform at the Ruthmere Mansion in Elkhart at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 10 as part of the R&R Series. Though off campus, this event has a long history with IU South Bend, specifically the Raclin School of the Arts. R&R stands for Ruthmere and Raclin.

Bring a teddy bear to this concert and you won’t be paying for your ticket. In exchange for the bear you get performances from the choirs of IU South Bend, the IUSB Kick Line and the IUSB Jazz Ensemble. The appropriately named annual Teddy Bear Concert took in 600 teddy bears last year. Each bear goes to a family in need to provide presents for the holidays.
