Direct from Cuba the 75-member orchestra returns by popular demand.

It has gone on to develop and introduce exceptional Cuban and Latin American music to the international classical music community via its vast symphonic and chamber repertoire. A repertoire which ranges from baroque to contemporary music. The National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba has conducted international tours delighting audiences in countries such as Russia, Poland, Yugoslavia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Spain, Peru and Argentina.

Pérez Mesa is a graduate of the National School of Arts specializing in the violin. He studied orchestral conducting at the Higher Institute of Art of Cuba. In addition he holds a master's degree in orchestral conducting from the University of the Arts of Havana. He was musical director of the Matanzas Symphony Orchestra and has collaborated with prestigious artists such as the guitar quartet Los Romeros, Víctor Pellegrini, Ney Rosauro, and Frank Fernández. He has participated in important festivals such as the Guitar International of Havana, Morelia, the Autumn Festival "Eduardo Mata", Symphony Orchestra, The famed Perez-Mesa has led performances in prestigious concert halls all over the world.
