In 2011 Bielefeld University integrated a new event series into its cultural programme: the reception for Master students.
Exclusively for Master students of the University, it has already been held twice a year greatly successfully. Thus, the festive reception shall not be missing in the future.
In January of this year, the University and the Theater Bielefeld (in German) invited students to a New Years reception. The guided tour through the theatre and the look behind the scenes as well as the joint visit of the dress rehearsal of “Brassed off- mit Pauken und Trompeten” [“Brassed off- with drums and trumpets”] were received with enthusiasm.
In April the University once more welcomed their newcomers with “drums and trumpets”. In cooperation with the Bielefeld Philharmonic Orchestra (in German) and the alumni association (in German), students were guided through the musical Romance. Under the direction of musical director Alexander Kalajdzic and with the baritone Bo Skovhus the Bielefeld Philharmonic Orchestra performed pieces by Beethoven, Mahler and Schumann. After the concert, over a glass of sparkling wine, members of the orchestra as well as the musical director willingly talked with the audience.
Thus, everyone should be excited about what the next Master’s reception in the winter semester 11/12 will have in store!
