This coming Friday, May 15, at 7:00 pm central and running till 10:00 pm , WFMT will join American Public Media for a live broadcast from the Teatro Nacional in Havana, Cuba, featuring the Minnesota Orchestra.

The Orchestra is joined by pianist Frank Fernández and two Cuban choirs in an all-Beethoven program that features the “Choral Fantasy” and the “Eroica” symphony. Osmo Vanska conducts.

This performance and broadcast are the first of an American orchestra from Cuba in many years, and follow President Obama’s move to normalize relations in December 2014.
