Philharmonic To Receive AmCham Germany Award

Posted December 19, 2013

AmCham award 

We are happy to announce that the New York Philharmonic is the U.S. recipient of this year’s AmCham Germany Transatlantic Partnership Award.The German recipient is the Berlin Philharmonic. Music Director Alan Gilbert and Executive Director Matthew VanBesien will accept the award in Berlin on January 28.

The jury said:

Both globally-renowned orchestras – the Berlin Philharmonic and New York Philharmonic – inspire and captivate individuals on both sides of the Atlantic. Through the universal language of music, they build bridges and bring continents together. This bond is of fundamental importance against the backdrop of current political dissonance. By paying tribute to both orchestras, AmCham Germany will send a clear message of transatlantic friendship to the international community.

Founded in 1903 as the American Chamber of Commerce in Germany, the organization’s goals are to support unrestricted trade and investment between the U.S. and Germany, and to promote a healthy, open and productive business climate between the two countries. 

We thank AmCham Germany for endorsing our belief in the power of music to foster friendship across borders.
