Elisabeth von Trapp, granddaughter of Marie, to perform at Phipps
Elisabeth von Trapp, the granddaughter of the legendary Maria and Baron von Trapp, whose story inspired "The Sound of Music," will perform in concert accompanied by Paul Asbell, guitar, and Peter Riley, bass, on Sunday, May 19, at 7 p.m. at The Phipps Center for the Arts.
Singing professionally since childhood, von Trapp has entertained audiences from European cathedrals to the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
Her concert repertoire ranges from Bach to Broadway, from Schubert to Sting. With equal ease she sings timeless favorites such as Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Favorite Things" and "Edelweiss," lieder by Mozart, Puccini's "O Mio Babbino Caro," soaring gospel tunes, pop classics like "A Whiter Shade of Pale," and her own compositions.
Tickets are $27 for adults and $20 for students of all ages. Reservations may be made by contacting The Phipps ticket office at (715) 386-8409 or online at The Phipps.
