Today, Elisabeth von Trapp carries on the legacy of the internationally renowned Trapp Family Singers. Elisabeth was inspired by her father Werner von Trapp’s guitar playing and singing to begin piano lessons when she was eight. By sixteen she was playing guitar and traveling the back roads of New England performing with her siblings at weddings and family gatherings, gospel meetings and town halls. She has enthralled audiences from European cathedrals to Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center.

St. Thomas is located at 372 Reservoir Road in Burnsville on the hill behind CVS overlooking downtown Burnsville. Additional information will be provided in next week’s local newspaper.
