Back from their triumphant United Kingdom tour, the von Trapps — Sofi, Melanie, Amanda and August, the great-grandchildren of Maria & Georg von Trapp — are blossoming in Portland!
On Thursday night (June 26) at 8pm at Mississippi Studios (3939 North Mississippi) the von Trapps will unveil their brand-new Portland-based band and will be performing songs from “Dream a Little Dream”, their recent collaborative album with Pink Martini.
Pioneering a new sound and look, they will be debuting brand-new compositions of August von Trapp, as well as smart fashions from the legendary Paige Powell Style Council.
Tickets for this performance are ridiculously reasonable : only $20 — that’s only $5 per von Trapp! — and you’ll get the bonus of their new bandmates Simon Lucas (drums), Will Gibbs (upright bass) and Esther Shim (piano). Inevitably there will be surprise guest appearances and many hilarious moments. Mostly, however, this is a great opportunity to show support for Portland’s newest neighbors the von Trapps! They are irresistible … and they make great schnitzel!
You can purchase advance tickets at www.mississippistudios.com or at the door or through the link above.
I highly recommend that you get your tickets in advance because it will most likely sell out! See you Thursday night at Mississippi Studios!
