The emblematic Casa de las Américas, in this capital, invites today to the concert to be given in its premises by the Harvard Jazz Orchestra, United States, conducted by Cuban Yosvany Terry.

The evening will take place in the Che Guevara Hall and will mark a new performance here by this group of young non-professionals in a reunion with the Cuban public.

During previous visits to Havana, this musical group has collaborated with national students and prestigious musicians from the island.

Performances like this one are part of their university academic programme, through which they have access to this type of extra-curricular training.

For his part, Cuban conductor and saxophonist Yosvany Terry (Camagüey, 1972), son of the also renowned musician Don Pancho Terry, is linked to the study and performance of jazz and its Cuban roots.

Born into a musical family, this artist was trained at the Escuela Nacional de Arte.

In 1995 he began to travel to the United States to join the faculty of the Stanford Jazz Workshop and to tour with his first jazz project, Columna B.

He has lived in the United States since 1999 and throughout his career has served at renowned institutions, including Princeton University, the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, the Brubeck Institute, NYU and Goddard College, according to his CV.

Also Boston University and Casa de las Americas in Havana, as well as the Royal Conservatory of Music in Winnipeg, the Banff Center for Arts and Creativity, Columbia University, the University of Salvador de Bahia and the University of Rio de Janeiro.
