The von Trapp family

Back by popular demand! Sofia (25), Melanie (23), Amanda (22), and August (18) von Trapp are the great grandchildren of Captain and Maria von Trapp from the beloved musical Sound of Music. In addition to performing at Belleville in October 2011, the von Trapps have toured and traveled over five continents—Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa and North America—delighting their audiences everywhere!

They have appeared in concert at the Hollywood Bowl, The Sydney Opera House, The Forbidden City in Beijing, Seoul Square, Korea, the Grand Ole Opry, Austin City Limits and at La Nuit des Choeurs Festival in Belgium. The von Trapps made their Carnegie Hall debut in December 2012 with Pink Martini and the New York Pops Orchestra.

Belleville Roots:

Belleville Congregational Church has longstanding roots in the Newburyport community as a gathering place and supporter of local service organizations. The Roots Music Series, founded in December of 2010, has three important missions: First, the series brings a variety of high quality Roots Music concerts to the Newburyport area for all to enjoy. The series celebrates music ranging from a cappella to zydeco and includes a diverse range of blues, bluegrass, Cajun, Celtic, country, folk, gospel, Irish, jazz and world music. The second mission of the Roots Music Series is to raise funds to restore and maintain the historic 1867 Belleville Meeting House and adjacent Fiske Chapel complex at 300 High Street in Newburyport. Our objective is that the Meeting House and adjacent complex will continue to serve as a gathering place for many generations to come. The third mission is building community through music.

At the end of our third season, we have presented a total of fifteen concerts.
