Alpine Thunder Offers New Holiday Program

December 1, 2016

Although we often take today’s Christmas celebration customs for granted, most of the so-called “traditional” Christmas practices only date back to the 19th century.   Many of these customs originated in Germany and Austria.  Alpine Thunder will take you on a musical journey through Germany relating German Christmas music,
and, other German folk songs to traditional holiday practices, German culture, language and geography

Alpine Thunder Returns

On October 18th, 2016, Alpine Thunder returned to the Glenview Public Library for their 10th year performance.  Each year we perform our Oktoberfest Cultural Program where we reference German Oktoberfest culture and geography to the music performed at this time.  This time we had Alpine Thunder perform as a quintet with three alphorns.  Prost Oktoberfest! Prost Glenview Public Library for making this happen!
