Elisabeth Von Trapp making her first Colebrook appearance at the Monadnock Congregational Church in a concert presented by the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts.
Elisabeth, the third generation of the Von Trapp family, brings the music celebrated in the story of her famous family, “The Sound of Music,” to new audiences with her stunning renditions of songs like “These Are A Few of My Favorite Things” and “Edelweiss.” But Elisabeth is so much more, including in her concerts songs that keep the traditions of folk music alive here in the 21st Century.
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. 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.”
