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.
