University of Minnesota Concert Band Ensemble (CBE)

Cultural Exchange Tour of the Soviet Union - 1969

At the height of the Cold War, the University of Minnesota Concert Band Ensemble (CBE) toured the former Soviet Union as part of a cultural exchange program to ease tensions and promote better relations.

This web-site is dedicated to the memory of that trip.


We are not officially affiliated with the University of Minnesota in anyway but are a group of alumni and friends who would like to see the memory of this trip preserved for future generations.

If you have any additional information you would like to contribute we would be very glad to hear from you.
