Presentation of the AmCham Transatlantic Media & Communication Award to David Garrett

Garrett is a cultural ambassador to Germany and the USA

(lifePR) (Frankfurt am Main, ) On April 8, 2011, the American Chamber of Commerce in Germany (AmCham Germany) will honor the musician David Garrett with the Transatlantic Media and Communication Award at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart. This award, to be given this year for the second time, honors exceptional accomplishments in the fields of media and communication.

Garrett is a cultural ambassador to Germany and the United States. As the son of a German father and an American mother, he is connected to both countries. Since completing his studies at the Juilliard School in New York, his performances have led him to both countries many times.

He has managed to capture in his music what words cannot. Music connects people and doesn't need an explanation. With virtuosic ability, David Garrett combines "serious" music with his own tempo and beat. His music transcends traditional boundaries and appeals to a wide range of listeners, well beyond just fans of classical music. This is worthy of recognition. Through his music, David Garrett is making an important contribution to the German-American partnership.

The presentation of the Transatlantic Media & Communication Award will be the highlight of the 108th annual meeting of the American Chamber of Commerce in Germany.
