The Next Generation of von Trapps

Mar 23, 2015

Fifty years ago The Sound of Music hit the big screen, and people all over the world fell in love with the von Trapp family.

On this Talk of Iowa segment, Charity Nebbe talks with Sofia and Amanda von Trapp. Along with their brother and sister, they are carrying on the family legacy, but not quite in the way you might expect. 

"We grew up very aware of how much happiness our story brings to people," says Sophia. "We're very respectful of that. But I think, for us as individuals, we're also trying to add to the story, not just ride on the coattails of what's already happened."
