Season two of the Belen Jesuit Cultural Series will include a performance two-time Grammy- nominated All-Star ensemble Seraphic Fire on Tuesday, December 11 at 8 p.m. in the Roca Theater.
From the traditional opening strains of Adeste Fideles (O Come, All Ye Faithful), Seraphic Fire’s annual a cappella candlelight Christmas concerts are one of the highlights of the cultural season. The world’s most beloved yuletide hymn, Silent Night, will serve as the centerpiece for this year’s Christmas musical celebration. Beautiful Gregorian chant, timeless carols, and glorious motets create a holiday soundscape that transport the listener across time and space.
“It really isn’t the Christmas season until you hear a choir sing O Come, All Ye Faithful, Silent Night and The First Noel,” said Seraphic Fire’s artistic director Patrick Dupré Quigley. “This year’s program is a sung Christmas card – images and messages that last with the listener throughout the season. We are excited to have this opportunity to perform for the Belen community.”
The Belen Cultural Series is a cultural resource to the community while continuing to enrich the lives of our students, their families, alumni, Belen faculty and administration.
Net proceeds from the Cultural Series benefit the Belen Scholarship Program. Every year Belen provides financial assistance to over 300 students, distributing $1.8 million annually. General admission $55
