Please pass on to any interested parties who may be in Berlin during our
tour.  Thank you

   Berlin is a city of contrasts.  It has served as the capital
   of Imperial Germany, the Weimar Republic, the Third Reich, the
   German Democratic Republic, and now the reunified Federal Republic
   of Germany.  During the cold war, the wall that ran through the
   middle of the city was the most powerful symbol of the division
   between East and West.  On the night of November 9, 1989, the
   dismantling of that same wall became the symbol of the end one
   era and the beginning of another.  Today, Berlin is the capital
   of a reunified Germany and is undergoing a massive rebuilding
   campaign that places it firmly at the center of a new Europe at
   the beginning of the 21st century.
   
   Berlin's diverse culture offers something for everyone, from
   symphonies and operas to techno, from classical theater to
   avant-garde cabaret, from world-class museums to small art
   galleries, from 18th-century palaces to the modern shopping
   arcades of Potsdamer Platz.
   
   From January 10-16, 2007, the Cornell Symphony Orchestra will
   lead an orchestra trip to Berlin, where we will explore these
   many sides of the German capital.  We will perform with two
   Berlin area orchestra members on January 14 at the Evangelische
   Kirchengemeinde Grunewald.  We will also attend an open rehearsal
   by the Berlin Philharmoniker and attend their concert.  We will
   also attend a performance of Die Fledermaus at the Komische Oper.
   We will also visit the Pargamon and the Jewish museum, plus a
   visit to the US embassy.  Here is the itinerary.
