Elisabeth von Trapp at Silver Center April 16

April 15th, 2009 by Adam

Plymouth.N.H.—The sounds of music are part of Elisabeth von Trapp’s earliest memories. But while she has not climbed every mountain, von Trapp has become a musician in her own right, with a repertoire ranging from Bach to Broadway, Schubert to Sting. With equal ease and eloquence, she sings show tunes or lieder by Mozart, gospel tunes or pop classics. “The Chicago Tribune” says her music “reflects her classical training and her love of folk music.”

Von Trapp, who has enthralled audiences from European cathedrals to Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center, singing professionally since childhood, will do so again at 7 p.m. April 16 at Plymouth State University.
Her vocal sound has been called golden, warm, clear and ethereal and she is described as an unexcelled creator and performer of songs of a gentle, tender touch. Listeners have likened her to Judy Collins and Lorena McKennitt.
Elisabeth von Trapp has self-produced five albums, and has performed across the U.S., Austria and Russia. Her music has been featured on National Public Radio, BBC-Radio, Japanese National Radio and CNN Spanish Radio. She has appeared on CBS’s “Eye on People,” ABC’s “Good Morning America” and BBC-TV.

Tickets for von Trapp’s Plymouth State University performance are $30 for adults, $28 for seniors, $15 for youth and $8 for PSU students with I.D., at the Silver Center Box Office. Call (603) 535-ARTS or (800) 770-3869.
