The Dec. 15 performance of "The Sounds of Music" at Gettysburg College's Majestic Theater was previewed in the Dec. 3 Broadway World.
From Broadway World:
For Elisabeth von Trapp, "the sounds of music" are part of her earliest memories. Born and raised in Vermont, Elisabeth is the granddaughter of the legendary Maria and Baron von Trapp, whose story inspired The Sound of Music. Elisabeth will be performing "The Sounds of Christmas" with the Carolian Brass at the Majestic Theater, Gettysburg PA on Sunday December 15 at 3:00p.M. Ring in the holiday season with festive sounds of your favorite seasonal music from classical to sacred to pop. The evening's highlight will be a medley from The Sound of Music wherein the guitar solo of Edleweiss flows into extraordinary renditions of Stille Nacht.
Singing professionally since childhood, Elisabeth has enthralled audiences from European cathedrals to Washington D.C.'s Kennedy Center. Inspired by her father Werner von Trapp's guitar playing and singing, Elisabeth has carried on the legacy of the internationally renowned Trapp Family Singers. She began taking piano lessons when she was eight and by the age of sixteen 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, Elisabeth has created her own artistic style, at once ethereal and earthy, delicate and powerful. Listeners have likened her to Judy Collins and Loreena McKennitt. Critics have called her voice ..."hauntingly clear," "joyfully expressive" and "simply beautiful."
