Direct from Havana! The National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba is making their North Carolina debut on Friday, March 16 at 7:30pm! Their stunning performances took the United States by storm in their United States debut tour of 2012.

“It was a good show and a night to remember… Throughout the night, the Cuban composers were almost as plentiful as the standing ovations.”

— Schenectady Times Union October 28, 2012
