Yodeller Meeting Ends on a High Note

Fri, 19. May. 2017

The Jodlertreffen Obersimmental-Saanenland-Pays-d'Enhaut, yodeller meeting, took place last week under beautiful skies. Held in Gstaad, the meeting hosted eleven yodeller clubs and three youth groups, who performed in the ice rink pavilion.

The two-hour yodel concert featured excellent performances, including from new full member Rinderberg Oeschseite. Singers were in traditional costume, and the event boasted decorated carriages and floats, with a parade of elaborately decorated marching cows. One showed off a Nathalie von Siebenthal theme, mounted with the treadmill the cross-country skiing star from Lauenen trained on.
