For the evening of June 30, 2018, Professor Hannes APFOLTERER had invited the Former Governor of Tyrol, Dr. Alois PARTL, Professor Dr. Herbert EBENBICHLER and Professor Dr. Friedrich WEYERMÜLLER, the active and selected former members and musicians to the Hotel Cafe-Zillertal of the Family UNTERLADSTÄTTER in Strass in the Zillertal. On the one hand to a cozy get-together with a short review of the common successes and special performances and above all, to say goodbye to everyone personally.
The Original Tiroler Kaiserjägermusik took this invitation from Professor Hannes APFOLTERER as an opportunity to officially say goodbye to their long-time conductor. On arrival, in front of the hotel, three marches were played without a conductor, Chairman Eng. Heribert WALDNER spoke a few words that were barely understandable in the open air and handed over the outgoing conductor an envelope with a so-called „Private Law Agreement“:
Board and Committee of the Association „Original Tiroler Kaiserjägermusik“ had confirmed with their signature that Professor Hannes APFOLTERER may keep the conductor’s uniform of the Original Tiroler Kaiserjägermusik.
After that, the Chairman of the Association, Eng. Heribert WALDNER, was already gone as he was expected in Thaur as support at the District Music Festival - as previously announced by e-mail.
At the end of October, Professor Hannes APFOLTERER got a letter of Chairman Eng. Heribert WALDNER with the information that he be named
Honorary Conductor of the Original Tiroler Kaiserjägermusik-orchestra
in accordance with a decision of the extraordinary general meeting of the Association Original Tiroler Kaiserjägermusik.
Professor Hannes APFOLTERER rejected this offer by letter dated 31 October 2018.
