At the end of the Year of Germany in the USA, the Goethe-Instituts in the United States have strengthened their network with three completely updated institutes in Boston, Washington and Los Angeles. This is a signal of how important it is to continue the cultural and civil society dialogue between North America and Germany.
On October 31, the newly renovated Goethe-Institut opened its doors to a special visitor: the President of the Federal Republic of Germany, Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his wife, Elke Büdenbender, along with a delegation from Germany joined us for a special pre-opening celebration. The visit was followed by a joint concert of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Germany’s visiting Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, which wrapped up the yearlong friendship campaign “Wunderbar Together” that boosted German-American cultural ties throughout 2019.
