— F-M’s German Club this year participated in the National Goethe Institut Step into German Madsen Video Contest. The students won the first place prize for their music video, a Lip Dub of the Madsen song, “Lass die Liebe regieren,” which they filmed in the halls of the high school. Peter Zygowsky from the San Francisco Goethe Institut called Frau Stewart, the club’s advisor, to congratulate her in early February.

“We absolutely loved the group effort and the joyful spirit of everybody involved,” reads an announcement on the contest’s website.

Of the 38 participants in the music video, two will fly to Rothenburg, Germany, this summer to see Madsen perform in the Taubertal Festival, a three-day event. During their five-day visit, the students will be housed in a hotel, chaperoned by an official from the Goethe Institut, and given a sight-seeing tour.

The lucky students are Alexandra Dominy and Jonathan Wright, both sophomores in German 3, whose names were drawn in a lottery at F-M’s Foreign Language Fair on Friday, March 8, to decide who would go on the trip.

They’ll get to visit with Madsen backstage during their all-expense paid trip to Rothenburg.
