The Cuban-European Youth Academy (CuE) is an innovative exchange programme designed to help Cuban and European musicians with their further training. It receives no institutional support, with the result that all of its projects are financed by project partners and by grants from individual foundations.

Heiko Maas, foreign minister of Germany, is patron of the Cuban-European Youth Academy. The Federal Foreign Office of Germany has been an important partner for the project.

The Cuban-European Youth Academy’s first transatlantic orchestra project was co-founded and co-initiated by the Rheingau Music Festival and first became a reality in the summer of 2015. In 2017 the Rheingau Music Festival will make it possible to continue this transatlantic orchestra project by continuing to finance this joint project. Their ongoing support will be demonstrated by a concert in the Wiesbaden Kurhaus on 1 September 2017 within the framework of the 2017 Rheingau Music Festival.
