Bonn "Old Town Hall" - July 2012



The Rhinebeck-Rheinbach Exchange is a not-for-profit organization that provides an opportunity for students from the Rhinebeck area and our "Sister City", Rheinbach, Germany to participate in a two-week musical and cultural exchange. While on the Exchange, students in the band and/or chorus perform community concerts and spend time learning about the history and culture of each other's country while living with a host family. 2013 marks the Exchanges' 35th year and our goal is to keep the communities forever exchanging through peace, friendship, and music.


Our Motto:

"Hearts Across the Water"


Our Goal:

To foster friendship and cultural awareness between American and German Students and their families through a music-based exchange program.
