Fair Lawn United Methodist Church will host a concert featuring Elisabeth von Trapp February 20 at 7 pm.
For von Trapp, the sounds of music are part of her earliest memories.
Born and raised in Vermont, Elisabeth is the granddaughter of the legendary Maria and Baron von Trapp, whose story inspired The Sound of Music. Singing professionally since childhood, Elisabeth has performed for audiences from European cathedrals to the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
Inspired by the guitar playing and singing of her father, Werner von Trapp, Elisabeth has carried on the legacy of the internationally renowned Trapp Family Singers. Those wishing to attend the concert may pick up free tickets at the church at 9203 Wilson Boulevard, Columbia or call the church office at 803-754-2070 between 9 am and 2 pm Monday through Thursday or e-mail [email protected] An offering will be received during the concert and the proceeds will be used to support missions of the church. A donation of $10 per person is suggested.
