Avon Congregational Church to host the world-renowned Elizabeth von Trapp in concert.  Friday, November 17 at 7PM.

Avon Congregational Church 6 West Main St, Avon CT 06001 

Please join us at Avon Congregational Church for an uplifting evening of song from this veteran performer of "The Sound of Music" fame. Magic happens whenever Elisabeth von Trapp walks into a room and begins to perform-something rarely seen and distinctly her own. Whether it is her ancestral connections steeped in her family name or her own experience as a conveyor of life's experiences, both in song and words, Elisabeth's concerts are part music/part inspiration.

One could call her a "motivational musician," but the beauty of it is that you enter her world not knowing that something wonderful is about to happen-and you come out the other end a better person for the experience. Elisabeth's "tools" are much deeper than possessing one of the most familiar musical family names of the 20th Century. Yes, she channels the talents of her lineage-the famous Trapp Family Singers, whose music and story were celebrated in "The Sound of Music." But her talents are her own as well-honed by an insight into the whims and wisdom of a life living close to the earth in her home state of Vermont and the farm on which she grew up on as a youngster-always aware that music was embedded in her DNA. 

A meet-the-artist reception will follow. 

Free-will offering received.  Suggested donation: $10
