Inspired the Play and Movie, The Sound of Music...
The vonTrapp.org project celebrates the real von Trapp musicians, all ten von Trapp children, and their decsendants' talents and professions.
It is in memory of the von Trapp musicians, who inspired the 1959 Broadway play and 1965 Hollywood movie, The Sound of Music. From 1934-1956, they sang in over 2,000 performances, in venues ranging from high school auditoriums to iconic concert halls, bringing joy and comfort to over 3 million people throughout 30 countries. They were famous in their own day, a household name, with the distinction as 'the most booked attraction in U.S. history'.
The project collects, archives, and preserves materials related to the von Trapp musicians and seeks out opportunities to educate the public about their 22 year musical career.
