The Horn Group consists of  professional musicians, music students and amateur musicians of all ages.

Along with traditional Advent Concerts the Horn Group especially performs  at  big companies occasions, birthdays, anniversaries and at the different communities’ occasions in Obwalden kanton. Beside that the Horn Group has concerts in different parts of the Switzerland. The  Swiss television  invited the Horn Group to participate in the folk program „ Fensterplatz“ in spring 2000.

The Horn Group giggs  in different cast accoding to  occasion. From trio through  quartet, sextet, octet  until the horn choir. The repertoire is very varied. The Horn Group plays  works of Teleman, Händel, Mendelssohn, Rossini, Bruckner, Wagner  etc in the classical field. Original compositions are also available  alongside with good arrangements in the entertainment music. In addition the hunting music is also maintained by the Horn Group and is blown during the hunting season at different occasions.
