The Trapp Family Singers

I’m quite enjoying The Story of the Trapp Family Singers by Maria Augusta Trapp. It’s the true story on which The Sound of Music is based (in case you didn’t know). The story is very different from the movie, and quite an eye opener. One thing I have noticed, is that it is very much a recollection of events and you don’t really get a feel for the characters of the children or any of the many friends they made. And why ever did they change (almost all) their names? You really only get Maria and a little of Georg. More when I’ve finished it.

  1. If you are reading about the Trapp family I have a question. My mother says that she saw them sing in Bethlehem Pa. around 1932 or 1933. I thought that they didn’t come to the US until later in the ’30’s but could be mistaken. Does the book mention any tours to the US in the early ’30’s?
