Gonzalez, 26, made an announcement on Father’s Day and said his own father, Juan Miguel Gonzalez, who brought him back from the United States to Cuba, was his inspiration when he prepared to become a father for the first time.

“Soon I will begin to understand what it means to be a father,” Elian Gonzalez wrote on his Facebook page. “But what I know until now is my father and I hope to do it as well as he did with me.”

In a message to CNN on Sunday, Gonzalez said he and his fiancee were expecting to have a baby girl later this summer.

On Thanksgiving Day in 1999, a 5-year-old Gonzalez was found clinging to an inner tube off the coast of Florida. His mother and nine others sank after the rickety ship they were riding overturned as they tried to reach the United States from Cuba.

Gonzalez went to live with a relative in Miami who refused to return it to his father in Cuba. Juan Miguel Gonzalez said he was unaware of his ex-wife’s plans to take the boy on a dangerous trip to the United States.

The case sparked Cold War-era tensions between the US and Cuba when Gonzalez’s father and Miami relatives fought in US courts to gain custody of the little boy. US immigration officials finally decided that Gonzalez should be returned to the detention of his father, who had come to the United States to debate the return of his son.

Eventually armed US federal agents stormed the Miami house where Gonzalez lived with his uncle to reunite him with his father. A famous photo of Gonzalez who is frightened to see an armed US agent win a Pulitzer Prize.

Riots broke out in Cuban American communities in Miami, where many felt Gonzalez’s return to Cuba would give Fidel Castro a propaganda victory.

After the US Supreme Court refused to get involved in this case, his father and son returned to Cuba.

Gonzalez grew mostly from the spotlight in Cuba. In a rare interview in 2017, he told CNN that he agreed with what his father had done and was a strong supporter of the Cuban government. But he also said he hoped to one day be able to reconcile with his relatives in Miami.

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.
