Read about our history
The Yodel Club Heimattreu was founded by seven Swiss immigrants in the fall of 1975.
What brought them together was the love of singing, and, surely, a dose of home sickness. Creating a bit of Switzerland in the shadow of the Canadian Rocky Mountains played a significant role as well. None of the seven founders, ranging in age from 25 to 50 years old, thought about the profound impact this simple gathering would have on them and to so many others that would join over the years.
