Von Trapp sings in Union
Union — Elisabeth von Trapp, from the family whose story inspired “The Sound Of Music,” will perform an acoustic concert Thursday, Sept. 19, at 7 p.m. at People’s United Methodist Church, 33 Depot St./Route 235.
Born and raised in Vermont, von Trapp is the granddaughter of the legendary Maria and Baron von Trapp. Inspired by her father Werner von Trapp’s guitar playing and singing, she has carried on the legacy of the internationally renowned Trapp Family Singers.
She began taking piano lessons when she was 8; by age 16, she was playing guitar and traveling the back roads of New England performing with her siblings at weddings, gospel meetings and town halls. Building on her famed family’s passion for music, von Trapp has created her own artistic style. Her concert repertoire ranges from Bach to Broadway, Schubert to Sting.
Concertgoers will enjoy music to inspire the their journeys of the heart and soul including original compositions; poetry set to music; ballads of heroes and heroines; and melodies of love. Free-will donations will be received. For more information, call 785-4114.
