Mozart Lyceum to be Created in Havana

HAVANA TIMES, April 26 — The Salzburg Mozarteum Foundation has received support from the European Union to launch the creation of the Mozart Lyceum of Havana in October of this year.

The European Union will contribute 397,500 euros (about $ 525,200 USD), according to a Reuters report from Vienna on Wednesday. This amount will cover 75 percent of the cultural project’s costs over a three year period.

“The project allows us to act as international ambassadors and mediators of Mozart and to have long-term influence over exchanges between Cuban and European culture,” said Matthias Schulz, the artistic director and manager of the Mozarteum.

The school will be opened in Havana on November 22 with a concert and a musical workshop for children.
