Riggisberg

 

Early on Sunday morning, we were on our way, through fields and meadows spread over the gently pre-alpine landscape, to Riggisberg. The Weingart Jodel Family had arranged for us to participate in a genuine Swiss Jodel Festival. There were many clubs which had come from the nearby areas, and everybody performed two songs. The school auditorium was almost bursting at the seams and very hot. We sang our two songs and the audience liked our performance a lot. It was also a nice change for them, since we did not jodel. For us it was a great experience to be part of a Jodelfest, and especially at the end, when all the choirs gathered on the school grounds to perform a mass jodel, in this quaint town with views towards the Stockhorn and Gantrisch mountain range in the background ... what could be more Swiss.
