HAVANA, Cuba, Dec 12 (ACN) As part of the activities for the 45th anniversary of the Cuban University of the Arts (ISA), the principals of the center gathered in its Main Lecture Hall teachers from different graduations.
ISA founders, professors, employees and students who played a key role, both educational and artistic, received the 45th Anniversary Diploma for their legacy and contribution.
Among those invited to the gala were the Iris Duo and orchestra conductor Daiana García Siverio, who was grateful for the opportunity to visit her old school again and play for the first time in front of such a demanding audience.
It was also mentioned that the book 40th Anniversary—a collection of numerous snapshots that summarize long years of anecdotes within the ISA—is due to be finished in just a few days, as is a documentary film on the history of this academic institution, which reflects from different points of view the legacy of some of the great teachers who have devoted their lives to the art of education.
The University of the Arts, the only one of its kind in Cuba, was founded as the Higher Institute of Arts in 1976. It gives courses in the performing arts, visual arts, dance, music, restoration and heritage arts.
