Meet the Von Trapps - Speaker: William Anderson

“The Sound of Music” is the most seen musical play and movie ever produced, according to the Rodgers and Hammerstein organization. It follows the real life story of Captain Georg von Trapp of Austria, his seven children, and second wife Maria, whose family hobby became a singing career. In the pre-World War II era, the family was a famous touring group, until Hitler invaded their homeland. The Captain and Maria guided their family to freedom in the USA. The musical took liberties with the real story, but forever made the family name a household word. Their own lives are even more adventurous and inspiring. As the Trapp Family Singers, they performed for 20 years. They founded a new home in Stowe, Vermont, where they shared their rich culture through a music camp, and now the Trapp Family Lodge. Learn more about the Von Trapps, then and now, from a family friend, author William Anderson. Some of his 25 books include The World of the Trapp Family and V is for Von Trapp: A Musical Alphabet.
