The people of Thomaston Federated Church invite the community to join them in sharing “moments of song” by Elisabeth von Trapp Sunday, Oct. 16 at 4 p.m. at the church, 8 Hyler St.

Von Trapp, the granddaughter of Maria and Baron von Trapp, grew up surrounded by the sound of music, listening to everything from Beethoven and Vivaldi to the Rolling Stones and Joni Mitchell.

“Music has given me a place to be,” she said.

From subway platforms and folk clubs and from the White House and Kennedy Center; on radio and television stations in Europe, Asia and North America, von Trapp has shared her gift.

The concert is being held in the sanctuary of the church. There is parking behind the building. In lieu of an admission fee, a free-will offering will be taken. After the concert, everyone is invited to enjoy a time of fellowship with refreshments.
