Bauer and the factory band 

In August, a special birth­day was cel­e­brat­ed with lively rhythms: The Bauer factory band enjoyed its 60th anniver­sary with a cer­e­mo­ny in the Bauer Academy. Founded on August 9, 1961, the Bauer factory band has been an inte­gral part of the cul­tur­al and social life of the Voits­berg region ever since.

A suc­cess­ful celebration

The musi­cians and hon­orary members of the Bauer band as well as numer­ous invited guests met in the BAUER Head­quar­ter on August 5th. Beau­ti­ful­ly set tables, a deli­cious buffet and good music created the perfect atmos­phere. Bauer and the factory band were happy to welcome high-ranking guests such as Voitsberg’s mayor Bernd Osprian, the vice mayors Kurt Christof and Manfred Pret­ten­thaler, the city coun­cilors Chris­tine Hemmer and Franz Sach­ernegg (also chair­man of the Bauer factory band) and the board member of the Sparkasse Mag. Dieter Hornbacher.

The Bauer factory band per­formed numer­ous musical del­i­ca­cies — the spe­cial­ly com­posed Otto Roiss March, which the jubilee also con­duct­ed himself, could not be missing. As a gift, Otto Roiss pre­sent­ed a newly designed logo for “his” band. “Otto Roiss is not only a patron and sponsor, but also a very good friend of our band,” says Franz Peter Brann, exec­u­tive chair­man of the Bauer factory band.
