On the occasion of the annual concert of the DAAD USA, UA Ruhr successfully held the first alumni & friends gathering. Alumni of the three Ruhr universities (Ruhr University Bochum, TU Dortmund University, University of Duisburg-Essen) came together at Bar Culaccino to enjoy an evening of bubbly drinks and joined the DAAD for the Sound Understanding concert at Carnegie Hall afterwards.

Sound Understanding is DAAD and the DAAD Alumni Association's annual concert showcasing the young, talented DAAD music fellows from Germany who have spent the past year studying at music schools in the US and Canada. The music fellows are selected in a national competition among the best students at Germany's renowned music colleges.
