Elisabeth von Trapp can still remember the sounds of music from her childhood and has now become a musician on her own. Her range goes from Bach to Broadway and Schubert to Sting and she is comfortable with show tunes or lieder by Mozart, gospel tunes and cassic pop hits. The chicago Tribune says her music “reflects her classical training and her love of folk music.” von Trapp has performed for audiences from European cathedrals to Washington DC’s Kennedy Center and has sung professionally since childhood. She is set to perform at Plymouth State University on April 16th and 7 pm. Her vocals are golden, warm, calm and ethereal and she is often called an unparalleled creator with a gentle tenderness in the performance. She has been likened to Judy Collins and Lorena McKennit. Elisabeth von Trapp has five albums that she produced herself and has performed in US, Austria and Russia too. She has also been heard on National Public Radio, BBC-Radio, Japanese National Radio and CNN Spanish Radio. She has featured on CBS’s “Eye on People,” ABC’s “Good Morning America” and BBC-TV.

Elisabeth is the granddaughter of the legendary Maria and Baron von Trapp who inspired the movie The Sound of Music. She began taking piano lessons when she was only eight and by 16 she was a guitarist traveling through New England with her siblings.

A critic from the Boston Globe said,”Before the concert is over, she will have the crowd gasping with the sheer beauty of her voice.”
