The city’s premier shopping and lifestyle hub brings yuletide entertainment to global level with the special mall show featuring The Von Trapps on Dec 7, 5pm at SM Lanang Premier Atrium.
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 foursome has included the Philippines to be part of their world tour for the entire month. Their remaining trips for 2012 are all set for various parts of the US.
Songs like The Sound of Music (same title as the movie and musical), My Favorite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Sixteen Going on Seventeen, Edelweiss and Maria are some of the songs that even today’s generation has become familiar with one way or another.
Filipinos in particular easily relate to the story behind the Von Trapp family for the mere fact that they are tightly knit and love to sing together.
The Sound of Music tells the story of how Maria, tasked to look after the Von Trapp children, became a permanent part of the family’s life. Their lives have been interwoven by their love for music – a love that Maria introduced and picked up by Captain Georg Von Trapp, the orphans’ doting father. The Captain fell in love with Maria, and eventually got married to start a whole new adventure with the entire family as they moved out of Austria on to the US.
For over four decades now, the touching story of the singing Von Trapp family has been captivating the hearts of millions of people around the world. Different versions have been told in movies and theater musicals, but the music remains the same.
Since then, members of the family have gone their separate ways to build their own families. Music, however, continue to run through their veins and keep them together despite distances. That family treasure of musicality was revived for public performance when four great grandchildren decided to travel together and share their family’s music to the rest of the world.
