Havana, May 22 (RHC)-- More than 70 musicians, members of the Cuban American Youth Orchestra (CAYO), are getting ready for their first concert tour of Cuba.
Under the title of “Together in Harmony¨, the presentations planned for next weekend are sponsored by Classical Movements, a cultural exchange project between the Island and the United States with 25 years of experience, and the Institute of Music in the Caribbean nation.
According to Rena Kraut, founder of CAYO, the objective of this non-profit initiative is to provide educational and interpretive opportunities to musicians from both countries through workshops, artistic delegations and cultural exchanges.
"I think that CAYO has a lot of potential in artistic diplomacy and the presentations in Cuba indicate mutual goodwill and the desire to strengthen the relationship between the two nations, through learning and cultivating the spirit of goodwill," he said. Kraut.
