VON TRAPP CHILDREN
IN CONCERT WITH THE EDISON SYMPHONY!
FEBRUARY 27, 2005 , 2:00 P.M. AT THE STATE THEATRE IN NEW BRUNSWICK,
The von Trapp Children:
With the light joyfulness of youth the von Trapps, Sofia, Melanie,
Amanda and Justin, perform a
variety of enjoyable folk and classical songs from various European
and American traditions, including beloved pieces from "The Sound of
Music". They are the descendants of the famous singing family whose
story captivated the world in "The Sound of Music". As the
great-grandchildren of Captain von Trapp, they have inherited the
family's unique musical gift. The children have compiled an extensive
repertoire of music, and in singing together as a family, they create
a unique sound. Musicians and listeners of all ages recognize them
for their beautiful harmonic blend and pristine tone.
The children have performed across the country, beginning with a
1997 celebration of their grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary at
the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont. They
have since performed at The Grand Ole Opry, Fox News Network, Good
Good Day New York and they have appeared with major symphonies
throughout the United States.
Rueters New Service: "Close your eyes and it's like hearing the
darlings from the movie all over again."
Associated Press: " The legacy was solidified as the foursome
mesmerized audiences during a cross country tour recently."
Stowe Reporter: " With a musical heritage that precedes every recorded
note The von Trapp Children ever sing, the foursome have been gaining
accolades and praise for both their live performances and for their
recorded self-titled album... The sound is beyond mellifluous."
