Synopsis:
"Cuba Mia: Portrait of an All-Woman Orchestra" tells the story of a group of women musicians and their conductor Zenaida Romeu. They form part of the Camerata Romeu, a chamber orchestra in Havana, Cuba. As the orchestra prepares for a big concert in the Basilica of St. Frances in Old Havana, we follow the women in rehearsal and to their homes where we see them with their family and friends, learning much about life in present day Cuba. We hear glorious classical music with a Latin beat, composed by Latin American composers. We learn how hard it is to become a musician not just in Cuba where there are special hardships, but anywhere in the world where artists must sacrifice to reach the pinnacle of their art. In the end, we hear the concert, amazing music, played to an audience in the Basilica and all the struggles and hardships are forgotten.
