The von TrappsThe great-grandchildren of the famous von Trapp family, celebrated in The Sound of Music, have followed in the musical footsteps of the Captain and Maria, singing together in lovely harmony to delighted audiences around the world. Ranging in age from 19 to 25, the four siblings, August, Amanda, Melanie, and Sofi, have performed at Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry, the Sydney Opera House and the Hollywood Bowl, in Beijing’s Forbidden City and Korea’s Seoul Square, on Austin City Limits as well as on Oprah and The View. They have a new album, Dream A Little Dream, recorded in collaboration with Pink Martini, that the website PopMatters singles out for its “gorgeous vocal harmonies.” AllMusic calls the album “quaint and quirky” and praises its “sublime beauty.”


Growing up in Kalispell, Montana, the four sibs learned Austrian and American folk songs from their grandfather, Werner von Trapp – portrayed as Kurt “the incorrigible” in the movie. When Werner suffered a stroke 12 years ago, they made a recording of some of his favorite songs to cheer him up. Since then, they’ve recorded six more albums and a concert DVD, performing a wide array of old favorites from around the world as well as new originals. The Santa Fe New Mexican calls them “oddly cool” – and they are based in Portland, Oregon now. If you like unabashed sweetness and wholesome harmony, The von Trapps are the group for you!
