Dear Friends,We hope you had a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving and will enjoy a holiday season filled with gratitude and joy. We hope Horns to Havana is on your giving list.We are still basking in our appreciation for Scott and Roz Foster of San Francisco.  It is clear that great things happen once people visit Cuba and hear – and feel – the music and meet our musical family. A San Francisco guitarist/music educator, Scott connected to Horns to Havana through a mutual music friend and experienced his first visit to Havana with his wife Roz with our help in 2017.  After working with Havana music educators Enrique and Camilo and our students, Scott grew so passionate about the work we do to change lives, that he and Roz (also a musician/music educator) offered to host a fundraiser – a friendraiser as we like to call it – for our small but mighty organization. Read more below about this delightful and successful event last month.Camilo’s own musical journey with us is one of a happy success story, which we also share with you here in our end-of-the-year newsletter.We hope you will visit us any way you can. You can visit our website, which has great videos, photos and personal stories that reflect upon how Horns to Havana changes lives. You can watch videos on our YouTube channel or come to one of our events. Perhaps you may even come to Cuba and visit our workshop and schools. We will be in Havana in January for the annual Jazz Plaza Festival and for Horns to Havana activities with great artists as we share below.As the year comes to a close, we ask for your investment in the change we are making for individuals and for our countries and to enable us to continue growing our programs in 2019. We wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season!Warmly,
Susan Sillins
Co-Founder & Executive Director
