  1. Thank you so much to Mag. Gertrud Tauchhammer for hosting and our appreciation to the Society team, the MFA Austria and musicians for this warm welcome. It was a marvellous evening during which we had the chance to share with Austrian and international guests and also with our peers of the Diplomatic Corps in Vienna.
