Special Benefit Concert featuring The Von Trapp Children:
Sunday, October 23 at 4pm
We are thrilled to host the von Trapp Children for the first benefit concert of the year on October 23. The Sound of Music captured the hearts of millions when the film debuted in 1965. Now, 46 years later, the von Trapp's family legacy is born anew. Sofia, Melanie, Amanda and Justin von Trapp, the great grandchildren of Captain von Trapp, continue the tradition of the family's exceptional musical gift and love of singing, sharing songs and heart-warming family stories of life before and after coming to America. They will perform a cappella in our historic Meeting House. For more information, please visit their website at VonTrappChildren.com.
