On January 18, the Board of Management for the Robert Bosch Stiftung hosted a New Year’s reception at the Berlin Office. Uta-Micaela Dürig and Professor Joachim Rogall welcomed about 300 guests from politics, civil society, media, science, and culture.
Master of ceremonies for the event was Jochen Kühling, initiator of Heimatlieder aus Deutschland [songs from the German homeland], and ensembles from Morocco, Serbia, Vietnam, and Cuba provided lively and diverse musical entertainment throughout the evening. The musicians blended music from their home countries with elements from their new home, thoroughly impressing the guests with their exceptional sounds. As the evening wore on, the attendees were entertained with music from the trio Ricardo y Rafael y Pedro.
