Celebrating the von Trapp musicians who inspired the musical The Sound of Music
Discover Their Place in Musical History
vonTrapp.org is in memory of the von Trapp musicians, who inspired the 1959 Broadway play and 1965 Hollywood movie, The Sound of Music. From 1934-1956, they sang in over 2,000 performances, in venues ranging from high school auditoriums to iconic concert halls, bringing joy and comfort to over 3 million people throughout 30 countries. They were famous in their own day, a household name, with the distinction as 'the most booked attraction in U.S. history'.
