Latin America is the focus of a special cultural performance at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus Thursday evening, March 27. Azucar will perform Latin American song and dance in Swimmer Hall in the campus’ Williams Building beginning at 6:30 p.m. Admission is $5 per person.

Azucar is a Pittsburgh-based Latin dance band that performs a variety of Latin music styles, including Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Reggaeton, Cha Cha Cha, Bachata, Bolero, Rhumba and Latin Jazz. Members of the band have played with Wynton Marsalis, Tony Bennett and the Temptations, and have opened for national acts such as Cuban trumpet great Arturo Sandoval. Azucar was featured on the WQED 2005 Christmas Show “Live from Studio A” and released its first self-titled album in 2006.

All week long, March 24-28, Penn State Fayette students and students from area high schools will display art with a Latin American theme at Penn State Fayette’s Cultural Center in the Williams Building. Integral to the art exhibition is an art contest that will be judged by Penn State Fayette art faculty.
