Lebenslauf





Bild von ca. 1965: Roland von Bohr (Bildhauer), mein Vater,
singt mir und meiner Mutter (Wilhelmine Bucherer, Harfenistin) gerade russische Lieder vor



Ich lernte von 1969-1973 Orgelbauer bei der Firma Th. Kuhn AG, Männerdorf.
Nach einigen Monaten als Geselle in dieser Firma bildete ich mich weiter und
fand kurze Zeit darauf Arbeit bei der Orgelbaufirma Neidhardt, St. Martin/NE.
Weitgereist (u.a. Missionar der SIM in Afrika – vor und nachher Theologiestudium – sie Links bei engl. Lebenslauf unten) und in Berührung gekommen mit Instrumenten aller Art
verkaufte, stimmte, spielte und reparierte ich viele Klaviere.
1993 konnte ich die Klavierbauerprüfung mit Erfolg ablegen. Von 1986 an führte ich in Schönbühl mein Geschäft Bucherer Pianos. Seit Frühling 2016 bin ich pensioniert.
