The opening of the exhibition titled El submarino amarillo (The Yellow Submarine) was one of the activities of the day, which was also attended by foreign visitors.

Banda America interpreted anthological songs The Beatles played for the joy of millions of fans across the world.

Students and people of many ages met there, but specially those that lived the magical hurricane by the British quartet that delighted the world in 1960's.

No doubt the music by The Beatles in general, and by John Lennon's particular case, was a common factor that brought together different generations of admirers that put aside generational controversies.

Love, loneliness, friendship, love for the family grew in size in the pieces composed by The Beatles.

One can never forget "Imagine," a celebrated song Lennon wrote to sing to peace and to a world living in brotherhood; but we could do it by adding that we also would like to see the Earth free from wars and contamination.

"No power can take away from our memory Lennon's legacy, which will live for ever after," wrote in the catalogue of the exposition art critic Danilo Lopez Garces, also the curator of the show.

The show "El submarino Amarillo" inaugurated to remember the 35 years of Lennon's killing the 8 of December, 1980, will be open at the Provincial Center of the Arts in Holguin city till the 14 of January, 2016.
