The Von Trapps launch China Tour

From July 26th to Aug 12th, the grandchildren of the real von Trapp family are coming to China singing the memorable songs from the Sound of Music. A great tour of China is on its way.

The Sound of Music captured the hearts of millions when the film debuted anew. Meet Sofia, Melanie, Amanda, and Justin von Trapp. They are the great-grandchildren of Captain von Trapp, father of the famous singing family whose story captivated the world in the musical The Sound of Music. The siblings have continued the tradition of the family’s exceptional musical gift and love of singing, sharing songs and heart-warming family stories of life before and after coming to America.

The von Trapp’s perform a variety of folk and classical songs from various European and American traditions, as well as timeless pieces from The Sound of Music. Their effervescent voices mesh the way only a family’s can, and musicians and audiences from all over the world recognize the families beautiful harmonic blend and pristine tone.

As a result, they are increasingly in demand as symphony and pops orchestra guest artists. They have performed with such major orchestras as Boston Pops, Atlanta, Detroit, Cincinnati, Philidelphia, Baltimore, and Toronto. As well repeated performances with the Cincinnati Pops, Atlanta and Indianapolis Symphonies to name a few.

Sell out crowds have carried them into some of the world’s most prestigious theaters, including a date at the Sydney Opera House on a world tour that took them to Europe, Canada, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Korea and the Philippines. The foursome has also toured the U.S.A as can be seen on their schedule page.

The von Trapp’s have recorded over six albums and a DVD. Their latest recording is entitled A Cappella. The album is full of beautiful A Cappella arrangements such as Edelweiss, Amazing Grace, and Star of The County Down.
