In 2017 The Midwest Alphorn Retreat is planning a trip to Switzerland!!!!

Plans are underway for our group to attend the alphorn competition in Nendaz, Switzerland, July 21 -23, 2017. 

In addition, visits to other places of interest for alphorn players and spouses will be planned. 

Housing, transportation and all expenses are to be handled by each participant. 

As always, the group will be lead by our fearless leader, Dr. Peggy DeMers.

Invitations to join our group at the competition will be offered to everyone (and their spouse)

who has attended one of the past eight annual Midwest Alphorn Retreats.

If you are interested in participating, email John Griffith at alphornjohn@yahoo.com.

Alphorngruppe "Alpentraum"

A very special feature of Ein Prosit is our Alphorn Section.  

We have fourteen alphorn players!  This is the largest known Alphorn Ensemble in North America.

We are proud to feature Alphorngruppe "Alpentraum" with the Ein Prosit Band at all our events and festivals.

Actually, they all play brass instruments in the Ein Prosit Band! 

The group performs traditional music from Germany and other alpine countries. 

They perform in lederhosen and always have room for an extra pint of beer!

Alphorngruppe "Alpentraum" also performs independently
