Immigrant Of The Week: The Von Trapp Family Singers

by Greg Siskind

IMMIGRANTS OF THE DAY: THE VON TRAPP FAMILY SINGERS

Von trapp Most people know the story of this famous Austrian family that was the subject of the musical play and film The Sound of Music. Many may not realize that after the family fled Austria, they immigrated to the United States and brought their singing talent to American audiences. They also opened a lodge in Vermont that operates to this day. 

Father George and mother Maria passed on many years ago, but some of the children of that large family are still with us. Oldest daughter Agatha is now 96, but just a few years ago wrote a biography. Her sister Maria is now 95 and just last year returned to visit her native Salzburg. Sisters Rosemarie and Eleonore are also alive as is a younger brother Johannes who was born in the United States.
