Giving Back


Horn player Rudolf Diebetsberger decided not to stop performing when he retired from the Stuttgart Philharmonic. Instead, he chose to perform at street festivals, caf├ęs, and private parties to raise money for aid projects in India and Bangladesh. Diebetsberger donated over 50,000 Euros in 2010, so he is doing well with his goal -- giving 100,000 Euros to Anderi-Hilfe. I think he's in the 70,000s now. Once he gets to 100,000, Mr. Diebetsberger will actually retire. I imagine that will be a very satisfying retirement!
