The group from Nendaz

Nendaz boasts a group of alphorn blowers and a quartet who perform on various occasions.

The group 

Aimé Devènes, who was then joined by his two sons Antoine and Olivier, founded the group of alphorn blowers of Nendaz in 1984. He also welcomed among his players renowned players such as Pierre-Alain Bidaud and Gérald Pot.

The group is presently made up of 17 members. It is directed by Antoine Devènes and presided by Gérard Devènes.

It has great pleasure in participating  in different events organised in Nendaz such as the Easter celebration, sunrise at the Mont-Fort at 3300 metres in altitude, the summer market, the 1st of August, New Year’s Eve,...


The quartet

In 2004 a quartet was created and its mission is to promote the region of Nendaz, the Valais and the Alphorn in Switzerland. It collaborates actively with Nendaz Tourisme, Valais Tourisme and also Swiss Tourisme.
