"Manhattan Jazz Connection" Tours Belarus
The US Embassy Minsk supported a visit by the American jazz band "Manhattan Jazz Connection", which was invited to Belarus by the State Philharmonic Society to take part in the celebration of its 75th anniversary. Apart from the capital city of Minsk, the group visited several other provincial capitals, including Gomel, Brest and Vitebsk. Charge d’Affaires Ethan Goldrich attended the group’s concerts in Minsk and Vitebsk, using the opportunity to address audiences about the importance of cultural exchange to sustain and improve relations between the United States of America and Belarus.
