The Puerto Rican Heritage Society (PRHS), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in San Antonio, will kick off their 21st cultural event this fall. It’s also the organization’s first public in-person event since the start of the covid-19 pandemic.
The event is called Tres Culturas, Un Puerto Rico (Three Cultures, One Puerto Rico). It will take place on Saturday, November 12, 2022 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at McAllister Theatre located at 1300 San Pedro Avenue, on the campus of San Antonio College.
Tres Culturas, Un Puerto Rico will feature world-class folkloric music and dance performances celebrating the three cultures that make up Puerto Rico’s history. The unique storytelling experience will tell the origin of Puerto Rico — a fusion of Taino (the indigenous people of the island), Spaniard and African roots. PRHS is bringing a 17-member dance and musician ensemble from Ballet Folklorico Sangre Viva directly from the island to San Antonio for the event. News 4 San Antonio meteorologist, Jeannette Calle, will serve as emcee.
General admission tickets for Tres Culturas, Un Puerto Rico are $30 each and are still available to be bought via Eventbrite. All VIP tickets have been bought and claimed through a variety of sponsorship levels. VIP tickets will give attendees access to a VIP cocktail hour, premium seating, VIP parking passes, sponsor recognition and more. Proceeds from Tres Culturas, Un Puerto Rico will support PRHS’ student scholarship program, as well as other cultural outreach programs. For more information on the event, visit www.coquisa.org
