Surrounded by very interesting art in the municipal theater as we listened to this chamber orchestra's rendition of some classical Cuban pieces. It was a rare musical experience by some of Cuba's best young talent.

This landmark building with impressive murals is still undergoing a major restoration both inside and out. However, don't miss the visible details -- art deco light fixtures and vintage photos of past performers at Teatro Terry.

The show was about 1/2 hour long. But we were involved in a tour. If you go for the regular show I think it may be longer.
