The retreat is held using alphorns in the key of F. You may bring an alphorn in another key, but you will not be able to use that horn in the large group performances. Alphorns in F will be available for rent if you do not own a horn in the key of F, or do not wish to travel with your alphorn. The rental fee is $75.
