    Leipzig in Houston is a festival celebrating both cities’ arts and cultures. The concept arose from “Little Leipzig Week”, founded by former Bach Society Houston director Albert LeDoux in 2010, as a way to honor the city in which J.S. Bach wrote his most important music. Since then, Little Leipzig Week has grown, and in 2016 will begin its first year as a full festival over 10 days, involving 10 organizations with ties to both cities.

    All day
    2017.10.05

    After Germany’s elections, the conservatives (CDU/CSU) under Chancellor Merkel incurred their worst loss since 1949, but together are still the largest party coalition in the Bundestag. The second largest party, the Social Democrats (SPD), former coalition partner of the CDU, had its worst loss ever, and now becomes the leading opposition party. The right-wing, populist party Alternative for Germany (AfD), won an unprecedented 13% of votes, and also will be represented in the new Bundestag.
