B.E. Taylor Christmas Concert Returns to KCAC December 19

Posted on 6/10/2015 4:42:03 PM

For the fourth consecutive year, the magic of B.E. Taylor will return to the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex (KCAC) on Saturday, December 19, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. The fun-filled night of holiday music and entertainment for the whole family, presented by S&T Bank, will benefit Renda Broadcasting’s 36th annual Teddy Bear Fund Drive. 

The magical music tradition attracted over 8,000 fans in its first three years and boosted last year’s fund drive with an all-time record of over $125,000 in proceeds benefiting the fund drive. The Renda Broadcasting Teddy Bear Fund Drive has generated over $2.4 million for the Indiana Medical Center Pediatric Unit and the Free Care Fund for the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh for the past 35 years. 

Keeping with tradition, the show will feature an enchanting musical experience with B.E Taylor performing a treasure chest of traditional Christmas classics with an unforgettable signature style. The holiday event will be a true celebration of cheer and joy that has captivated the community. Taylor’s tour will spread the holiday spirit to over 40,000 fans in the month of December throughout the tri-state region, and Indiana is fortunate yet another year with his return.

“Our first three years in Indiana have been just unbelievable, and we are so excited to be coming back,” said Taylor. “We had an incredible response when we came to Indiana for the first time in 2012, and we’ve been blessed to grow the crowd a little bit each year. The sound in the KCAC is unreal, and the glow sticks and the energy from the crowd is something we hope to replicate and take to even higher level this year.”

Patrons will be in for a real treat again this year with a pre-concert program starring area high school all-star chorus groups that will kick off the celebration at 6:45 p.m. Mark Bertig, vice president and general manager of Renda Broadcasting, commented, “Kids helping kids has always been a big part of the Teddy Bear Fund Drive, and B.E. Taylor has been so gracious in including the students in the show in a variety of ways each year.”
