• May 2016 Konversationsabend: Heine's Poems and Schumann's Music
  • KA Leader Helga Halbfass and Board Member Hans Mueller wade during the KA Wandertag on June 4, 2016.

One of the regular events at the German Society of Pennsylvania is the “Konversationsabend” which takes place every second Wednesday of the month, eight times per year, February through May and September through December, always from 6 to 8 pm. Our traditional venue is the Ratskeller at the Society. A group of about 20 people meets for an evening of pleasant and stimulating conversation in German. The conversations center on a given theme, usually with a speaker who provides a brief introduction, which is followed by open discussion and refreshments. The themes cover a wide range of interests reflecting the diversity of the group, but also the special expertise and the preferences of the speakers, some of whom are members of the group, others teach at local or overseas universities. The group welcomes newcomers from all backgrounds, those who would simply like to speak German as well as those who wish to practice and improve their language proficiency in the relaxed environment of sympathetic native and non-native speakers.
