HAVANA (AP) _ George Martin, who produced most of the Beatles’ music, will conduct a local orchestra alongside famed Cuban composer Leo Brower during his visit to the Caribbean island this week.

The performance will be held Friday evening. The following day, Martin will give a speech about the Beatles’ music.

On Tuesday, he visited a metal sculpture of former Beatle John Lennon. ``It was very moving,″ Martin said.

Lennon was killed by a deranged fan outside his Manhattan apartment in 1980.
