The visitors of the house which was fully booked were to expect quite some aural pleasure.

A memorial concert celebrating the

100. birthday of Horst Winter

125. birthday of Julius Herrmann

150. birthday of Wilhelm Wacek

The welcome and introduction was given to the audience and the guests of honour by the chair of the Hoch- und Deutschmeister, Mr. Ralph Osner. The musical introduction was composed of the Deutschmeister fanfare, the Liebenauer cadet March, Wien-Berlin, and Horst Winter‘s former hit, Little Bear. After a well-needed break, the temperature in the hall was mid-summery hot, melodies by Robert Stolz were played, all hailing the Hoch- und Deutschmeister Regiment.

For her tireless charitable work (for years already clothes and items for daily usage are collected for the homeless) Horst Winter‘s widow, Mrs. Dipl.-Päd. Dorothea Winter, was awarded the Commander‘s Cross of the Lazarus Union by our president.

Both were surprised and honoured, and very pleased to have received these high awards. The ceremony was followed by some encores of the band. There might very well have been more but the temperature was close to that of a Sauna.

The CSLI delegation then met at typical Viennese tavern for a drink and a snack. Present were Wolfgang Steinhardt with his wife, Prof. Hans König, Ludwig-Loui Brunner with his wife, Christoph Ptak, Hannes Hochmuth with his wife, Monika and Hans-Rudolf Gries. All together a wonderful afternoon, very advisable.
