Y. T : ” No more secret, the Harvard Jazz Band en route to La Habana !!!!!

After two amazing years working and learning with the Harvard Jazz Bands, we are currently preparing for our “historical trip to Cuba” from this Friday, June 2 through the 9th.

Yess historical !!

We’re planning to visit and learn from Los Muñequitos de Matanzas, Ethiel Failde y su Danzonera and visit the historic neighborhood where legends Tata Güines and Arsenio Rodriguez lived in Güines.

As part of our schedule, we also  plan to exchange with the talented students from Guillermo Tomás, Amadeo Roldan and La ENA (National School of the Arts) Conservatories culminating in a  concert with some of today’s Jazz talents in the Cuban music scene including

Julito Padron, Bobby Carcassés, Don Pancho Terry, Gaston Joya Perellada, Yaroldy Abreu Robles, Cesar Filiu Douglas and Roberto Carcassés among others.

Also coming with us is  Jill Radsken from the Harvard Gazette.

Don’t think it twice if you’d like to join us in La Habana. Of course with the blessing of our great President Obama.

We would like to thank everyone who have supported & contributed to this trip including Harvard Arts, Harvard Music Department, Office of the Provost for the Arts and Humanities, David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard Cuban Studies, Susan Sillins & Horns to Havana – Non-Profit Yunior Terry and the incredible Jazz Band Alumni, without you this trip would have never been possible.
