About The Artist

Elisabeth von Trapp joins the Empire Brass for a dazzling program of Christmas music, ringing in the holiday season with their brilliant artistry.

For 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 enthralled audiences from European cathedrals to the Kennedy Center.

The Empire Brass enjoys an international reputation as one of North America’s finest brass quintet, renowned for its brilliant virtuosity and the unparalleled diversity of its repertoire. The five musicians, all of whom have held leading positions with major American orchestras, perform over 100 concerts a year.
