It's a holiday concert filled with the joy of singing when the great-grandchildren of the cherished Sound of Music von Trapp family join musical theater star Stephanie J. Block and the NSO Pops. The von Trapps have a "folk-pop sound that's uniquely theirs" (USA Today) that blends beautifully with the "simply stunning" (The Washington Post) Stephanie J. Block (Elphaba in Broadway's Wicked, Liza Minnelli in Broadway's The Boy from Oz). Featuring traditional favorites alongside fresh new tunes and arrangements, this concert sports seasonal spirit in spades--and with The Washington Chorus, a visit from Santa Claus, and the Concert Hall festively bedecked, the holidays have never been brighter.

Performance Timing: Approximately 2 hours, including one 15-minute intermission

Note: The von Trapps will sign CDs in the Grand Foyer outside the Concert Hall following the performances on Friday, Dec. 11 and Saturday, Dec. 12.
