Rub your eyes, gals and guys. Some lucky Germans will go to Vegas. Some serious Vegans will wind up in Cottbus.
Through a generous gift by German philanthropist Dorothee Hennings-Holtmann, the Las Vegas Philharmonic and the Brandenburg State Theater Orchestra, Cottbus are pleased to announce the American German Cultural Exchange Fellowship (AGCEF). This new and unique fellowship partners the Las Vegas Philharmonic with the Cottbus State Theater Orchestra in Cottbus, Germany and will give both organizations the opportunity to exchange guest artists with their respective orchestras.
The first two recipients of the AGCEF are German violinist, Tobias Feldmann, and American violinist, Alexi Kenney. Feldmann will perform Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in D Major with the Las Vegas Philharmonic on November 5, 2016 at The Smith Center and Kenney will perform Barber’s Violin Concerto November 18 – 20, 2016 with the Brandenburg State Theater Orchestra, Cottbus.
