Havana, CUBA Trip
Monday, December 10, 2012
Christina Jennings just returned from Havana, Cuba where she presented a concert and masterclass with the Philadelphia new music ensemble: Orchestra 2001. The concert was sponsored by Havana's 25th Festival of Contemporary Music which took place at the "Basilica Menor del Convento de San Francisco de Asis." The program included George Crumb's "Dream Sequence" and "Night of the Four Moons," together with Jay Reise's new "Flight of the Red Sea Swallow" for flute and piano written for Christina Jennings. This photo is from the masterclass I gave at the Havana's Amadeo Roldan Conservatory. Among the gifts we brought to these talented and under served students, was the complete Rubank Method Books for all band instruments, complements at the CU Band Department.
