National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba is in the Tampa Bay area

The National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba gives a concert Wednesday in St. Petersburg, featuring a work by composer Ernesto Lecuona, the "Gershwin of Cuba" whose music illustrates the deep ties between the island nation and the bay area.

Tribute to Ernesto Lecuona, drawn from songs by the composer, will be performed by the Cuban orchestra, which is on its first tour of the United States. It is being presented in the Tampa Bay area by the Florida Orchestra as part of a multiyear cultural exchange with Cuba.
