If you have loved listening to these wonderful Cuban musicians as much as I have and would like to help more, I invite you to donate to the fund – any sum, however large or how small, is welcome and will be gratefully received. We will keep this page updated with which instruments we have been able to buy.
September 2021 – Instruments for Cuba Update
Dear Friends, I am so happy and proud to let you know that through the CD sales and donations you have helped raise €25,000 for the fund. This is really fantastic! During our Mozart y Mambo tour in August 2021 we were able to purchase various instruments for the Havana Lyceum Orchestra, including 2 double basses, a flute, a clarinet, a trumpet, some percussion instruments, 2 horns and we could get all the violins and violas either repaired or the bows restrung. We bought accessories such as strings, rosin, reeds, tools and other important things which are impossible to obtain in Cuba. We also had some incredibly generous instrument donations: 4 oboes, 5 violins, a viola and a cello. The musicians of the Havana Lyceum Orchestra and I can’t begin to thank you all enough, your support means the world to us. Muchas gracias!
