A Cuban Cultural Festival will light up the University of Puget Sound campus this week, offering the public rare opportunities  to hear visiting Cuban orchestral musicians and to attend talks by Cuban scholars about the island’s culture.

From Monday, Oct. 8 to Thursday, Oct. 11 Puget Sound will host the festival’s visiting members of Orquesta de Cámara Concierto Sur (Concert Chamber Orchestra of the South). The talented musicians from Tacoma’s sister city Cienfuegos, Cuba, will present workshops and perform in a free 7:30 p.m. concert on Thursday, Oct. 11 in Schneebeck Concert Hall. The ensemble repertoire runs from Baroque to Renaissance to contemporary music, with an emphasis on preserving authentic Cuban music.

The Cuban musicians’ visit is a collaboration between Northwest Sinfonietta and University of Puget Sound, with funding from the college’s Catharine Gould Chism Fund.

Puget Sound will host four days of public events, including cultural talks and music, from Monday Oct. 8 to Thursday, Oct. 11. University of Washington Tacoma will hold a final concert on Saturday, Oct. 13.
