Season two of the Belen Jesuit Cultural Series will include a performance by Puerto Rican actor, singer, composer and television personality Carlos Ponce on Saturday, Jan. 26, at 8 p.m. The Belen Jesuit Jazz Band conducted by Marlene Urbay will perform alongside Ponce’s classic American and Latin standards.
“We are excited to welcome Carlos Ponce to the Belen stage,” said Jesuit Father Pedro Suárez, president of the school. “He is not only an accomplished singer and actor but he has managed to do both in English and Spanish. Our students in the jazz band are looking forward to performing with him and we are excited to invite the public to come to our theater for what will be a fantastic evening.”
Belen Jesuit Preparatory School-Roca Theatre is located at 500 SW 127 Ave.
Show and ticket information are available online atwww.belenjesuit.org/culturalseries.
