Piano Professor Yun-Ling Hsu was invited to perform a cultural exchange piano recital at the magnificent historical Sala Ignacio Cervantes Concert Hall in Havana, Cuba in November 2015.

Invited by Dr. Miriam Escudero, the Cuban Director of Musical Heritage Cabinet Esteban Salas (from Office of the Historian of Havana), Hsu performed a program with varied repertoire of piano solos and four-hand duets on a beautiful 9-foot Steinway grand piano in the concert hall. Her four-hand duet partner was Ana Rosa Hernandez, Dr. Hsu’s graduate student who received a Master of Arts degree in piano from UCF this past December. They were awarded the “Dean’s Excellence Fund” for their travel to Cuba by the Dean of UCF College of Arts and Humanities Dr. Jose Fernandez.

Dr. Hsu has been invited back to Havana to perform again in November 2016.
