Alpine Thunder Adds Third Alphorn

Starting January of 2016 Alpine Thunder has added a third alphorn – Alphorn Thunder!

Three alphorns allow us to get fuller and more interesting sounds as well as an impressive visual factor.  This group can perform with the Alpine Thunder band or can be used as an independent ensemble for special events.
