    Reception and Performance with Elisabeth von Trapp

    Von Trapp’s visit to South Florida comes during the 50th anniversary year of the release of the “Sound of Music,” the movie starring Julie Andrews that is based on the story of the von Trapp family. This visit will offer guests the rare opportunity to hear von Trapp perform and share the real story behind the “Sound of Music” in an intimate setting.

    For von Trapp, “the sounds of music” are part of her earliest memories. She was born and raised in Vermont and has been singing professionally since childhood, enthralling audiences from European cathedrals to Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center. Inspired by her father Werner von Trapp’s guitar playing and singing, the young von Trapp has carried on the legacy of the internationally renowned von Trapp family singers while creating her own artistic style. Critics have called her voice “hauntingly clear,” “joyfully expressive” and “simply beautiful.” Her concert repertoire includes Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Favorite Things” and “Edelweiss,” Mozart’s “Lieder,” Puccini’s “O Mio Babbino Caro,” and pop classics like “A Whiter Shade of Pale,” along with her own compositions.

    FAU’s Making Waves Award will be presented to von Trapp at the event. This award was launched by the School of the Arts in 2012 as an opportunity to recognize artists who have made a significant contribution to the arts and education on a regional, national or international scale.  Past recipients have included Broadway legend and musical theatre composer Charles Strouse and actor, director and educator André De Shields.
