My Day in the Hills: The Story, Songs, and Soul of The Sound of Music

Brownell Library 6 Lincoln St, Essex Junction, VT, United States

Why do Vermonters feel such a strong attachment to the story of the von Trapp family and, subsequently, to The Sound of Music? Educator and conductor Stefanie Weigand explores why this story draws us in and holds our attention, even though the events that formed the basis of the show and film took place decades ago and thousands of miles away.
