Bringing the spirit
of jazz to music

students in Cuba


To strengthen the ties between

us and to fulfill the dreams of

aspiring young Cuban musicians, we’ve embarked on a variety of musical and educational programs. We hope you’ll take a look at our projects and consider joining our musical dialogue.





Horns to Havana is pleased to announce that CHUCHO VALDÉS has become the latest member of the Advisory Board, and a Board Member of Horns to Havana.

The four Cuban professors, Victor Vargas, Yariel Hernandez, Enrique Rodriguez and Rodolfo Horta, had an amazing three days participating in the 18th Annual Essentially Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition and  Festival. Many thanks to Jazz at Lincoln Center for this exquisite collaboration with Horns to Havana. More is sure to follow.
