Thomaston Federated Church Hosting Elisabeth von Trapp

Thomaston -

THOMASTON, Maine — The people of the Thomaston Federated Church invite you to join them in sharing “moments of song” by Elisabeth von Trapp at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, at the church.

Von Trapp, the granddaughter of Maria and Baron von Trapp, grew up surrounded by the Sound of Music, listening to everything from Beethoven and Vivaldi to the Rolling Stones and Joni Mitchell. She says, “Music has given me a place to be.”

From subway platforms and folk clubs, from the White House and Kennedy Center, on radio and television stations in Europe, Asia and North America von Trapp has shared her gift. She “sings with an astonishing clarity about disappointment, the power of love and coming of age . . .” according to the Chicago Tribune.

The concert is being held in the sanctuary of the church at 8 Hyler Street. There is parking behind the building. In lieu of an admission fee, a free-will offering will be taken. After the concert, the people of the church invite you to join them for a time of fellowship with refreshments.
