Camagüey Children’s and Youth Symphony Orchestra

Founded on October 9, 2009, the symphony orchestra is made up of 70 children and teens between 8-18 years old who attend the Luis Casas Romero art school or the José White music conservatory, both in Camagüey. The orchestra is directed by a rotating graduate conductor from one of Cuba’s arts academies. Moving in and out of the position every one or two years, these young conductors develop their practice and repertoire in Camagüey.

Camaquito helps the orchestra acquire and maintain instruments, improves the educational environment in the music schools and supports the young musicians’ artistic development, for example by organizing a “master class” with foreign musicians in Camagüey.
