On the verge of its inauguration tomorrow, the oldest event dedicated to full-voice singing on Cuban soil, concerts are taking place on Wednesday in the neighborhoods, where the sound proposals of the Orfeon Santiago, the Coro Madrigalista and the Camerata Musica Aurea can be enjoyed and appreciated.
