Horns for Havana

In January of 2016, I traveled to Havana, Cuba with the Victor Goines Sextet to teach through the nonprofit Horns for Havana.  Created after the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra traveled to Havana in 2013, the Horns Project has provided instruments to under equipped music schools, has established an instrument repair shop in the city, and is committed to continuing jazz education and cultural exchange.  In April 2016, the big band from La Escuelas Nacionales de Arte (La ENA) performed at Lincoln Center in downtown New York City.
