    My husband and I have enjoyed the music of Slavko Avsenik for many years. We saw him twice in Cleveland, Ohio and at the SNPJ Lodge in Enon Valley, PA. Our favorite song that he played is ”
    Die Sieben Rosen.” He is leaving a beautiful legacy of beautiful music that will remain in our hearts forever.
