The Family Who Inspired The Sound of Music...
"The most heavily booked attraction in concert history." –William Anderson
vonTrapp.org celebrates the von Trapp musicians who were a household name and famous in their own day. The project collects, archives, and preserves materials related to their 22-year musical career as the Trapp Family Choir and Trapp Family Singers. It also seeks out opportunities to educate the public about their musical place in history.
The vonTrapp.org Archive is in memory of the von Trapp musicians, who inspired the 1959 Broadway musical and 1965 Hollywood film, 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 during a time of great uncertainty.
