German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier visits the Goethe-Institut Boston
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.
