German violinist Andreas Neufeld will perform here today with La Camerata Romeu in the big concert Con Acento Latino, dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the founding of the women’s orchestra conducted by maestro Zinaida Romeu.
Considered unique for its repertoire and stage presence, the Women’s Chamber Orchestra is organizing a series of solo concerts in honor of its birthday, including this Saturday with special guest Neufeld, who will showcase his talent at the San Felipe Neri Oratorio.

The evening is sponsored by the Cugate Clásicos Latinos, the Cuban Ministry of Culture, the Cuban Institute of Music, as well as the National Center for Concert Music, the Office of the Historian of the City of Havana, and the San Felipe Neri Oratory, the venue for the concert.

Andreas Neufeld started his life playing the instrument at the Music School in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, and later made his debut as a soloist with the Dnepropetrovsk Philharmonic Orchestra.
He was born in the former Soviet Union in 1976 to a family of musicians. Upon graduation, he joined the Berlin Orchestra where he worked for over 10 years, then left the group to play on his own and give lessons, one of his passions, as he once commented, indicates PL. One of his favorite pieces is Massenet’s Meditation, but with the Camerata Romeu he will offer a varied repertoire.
