Instructor & Founding Member
Tony Brazelton is a professional trumpet and alphorn player and instructor with more than 40 years of experience in musical performance.

Salzburger Echo brings the music of the Alps to their audiences, playing Old World and Contemporary Folk music from the alpine regions of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The band regularly plays some of the largest Oktoberfests in the nation and has performed at hundreds of elementary schools across the nation to help teach children about the origin of the music and about the music itself.
