It was past midnight in New York and Washington, DC, and night in Los Angeles, but large crowds were still on the streets in both cities, and the spirits were high.

In New York, protesters march through Greenwich Village in downtown Manhattan. The curfew is at 8 pm, but tonight there are not many police, and the police have not imposed a curfew with arrests like earlier this week.

The protesters have been lining up for hours now. Some organizers and leaders remain enthusiastic about singing calls and responses such as, “Don’t get involved, we are united, we are peaceful” and “United, people will never be defeated.”

“The system will not win,” a protester told CNN. “People have a voice now and they listen to us. They listen to us because we are united. They listen to us because things like this happen in the middle of Manhattan, where thousands upon thousands of people don’t have to let injustice happen again.”

In Washington, DC, a big crowd tonight – perhaps the biggest since they started, CNN correspondent Alex Marquadt said at the scene.

The curfew was lifted earlier this week, and protests remained peaceful. People gathered at the edge of Lafayette Park, close to the White House, taking photos with a new road sign that read “Black Lives Matter Plaza.”

There are several law enforcement members and National Guard forces in sight – but no one approached the aggressive figures seen earlier this week, Marquadt said.

In Los Angeles, the curfew has also been lifted and the protest remains peaceful, with a bright mood tonight.

The demonstrators, numbering at least 1,000, varied, said CNN reporter Lucy Kafanov at the scene. He described seeing “members of the Asian community, the Latin community, white people, black people, LGBTQ, everyone.”

“The vibrations of the community are really famous,” he said. “There are many people who go around distributing snacks, masks, hand sanitizers, food for the demonstrators … One of the beautiful things on the human level that we see is, as they pass through various apartment buildings, people come out to their balconies, starting clap pots and pans in protest solidarity. “

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
