One of the United States’ leading music student ensembles, The Chicago Consort Orchestra, is heading to Cuba in June to perform in three Cuban cities: Havana, Matanzas, and Santa Clara.
Since forming in 1983, The Chicago Consort has performed across the whole of the United States, Canada, Europe, and China, but this will be its first time in Cuba.
The group is under the musical direction of Thomas Wermuth, who studied violin in New York, performed extensively, and has dedicated his time to teaching young musicians.
The age of the group’s members ranges between 13 and 18 years old, and, individually, performers from the orchestra have won numerous competitions and awards.
With regular flights now available to Cuba, why not head out there to support them this summer.
