Financial advisor for Bank of America Merrill Lynch Derek Braggs presents a check to Taltree Event Coordinator Victoria Skoronski-Rhoads and Taltree Executive Director Stephanie Blackstock for sponsorship of concerts of the Acorn Concert Series.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch has partnered with Taltree by providing an $8000 donation to the Acorn Concert Series to help fund the Sept. 16 date.

“Bank of America Merrill Lynch is proud to support Taltree’s efforts to preserve this natural landscape and educate the people in our community,” senior vice-president and business banking market executive for Indiana, Metropolitan Chicago and Southwest Michigan Dillon Dalton said. “We feel that the arboretum as well as the events that take place there are an invaluable asset to Northwest Indiana.”

Derek Braggs, a board member of Taltree Arboretum & Gardens, said the first show of the concert series acted as a benchmark for the rest of the shows in the series.

“We have a fantastic lineup of local and national touring musicians taking the stage this summer,” Braggs said. “I think we are going to introduce a lot of people to some great music that they may have never heard before.”

Braggs said Northwest Indiana has the potential for a thriving music scene, and Taltree should be a part of it as the series continues to grow.

“When you think of the best live music venues in the country, you think about places like Red Rocks in Colorado and The Gorge in Washington,” Braggs said. “The reason those places are such popular destinations is because of the natural landscape that surrounds them. We have that out at Taltree. Each concert ticket costs $15 and each show is family friendly.
