27. Gaufest Publicity

The Lechgaukapelle was a great treat for our Gaufest in Washington, D.C.  Twenty musicians plus some family and friends were in attendance.  Rosi Geiger, former Pressewart of the Lechgau, traveled along with them and has been busy reporting on the trip. One article appeared in the Merkur, the other in the most recent issue of the Heimat- und Trachtenbote. Both articles are so complimentary! The one in the HTB has a great photo of the majority of the Bavarians, including those who did not travel with the Kapelle, who attended the Gaufest. Thank you, Rosi, for the wonderful write-ups.
