The retinue, which was received at the Larios Gallery-Workshop, is made up of 42 people, including ten jazz-cultivating musicians, which is the most extensive since the twinning between Madison and Camagüey began more than two decades ago.
With the name of Jazz-Camagüey, the American representation listened dissimilar musical pieces of Cuban and United States composers interpreted masterfully by the local Chamber Orchestra, founded on January 6, 1994, directed by the Maestro Juan Ramón Orol Cabrera.
Ricardo Gonzalez, a Camagüey´s citizen who resides in Wisconsin and who chairs the delegation, said that the program includes tours of art galleries of the once Villa de Santa María del Puerto del Principe, which next February 2 will be 505 years of founded.
The musicians of Madison will share the stage with the Camagüey´s group Musicora and the Jazz Band orchestra.
