A new generation of Von Trapps is carrying on an old family tradition. Four siblings of the singing famil, which settled in Vermont after they escaped the Nazis and performed across the U.S., have a new album.
The kids – Sofia, Melanie, Amanda and Justin – range in age from nine to 16. They sing in harmony and perform in costumes worn by the original group. In an interview with The Associated Press, Sofia von Trapp says the family is just lucky to be blessed with good singing genes. The new album, “The von Trapp Children, Volume 2,” is due out next month.
