Usher in the holiday season with … ‘The Sound of Christmas’

TERRE HAUTE — Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology’s Hatfield Hall will usher in the holiday season with “The Sound of Christmas,” featuring Elisabeth von Trapp and the Carolian Brass, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Granddaughter of Maria and Baron von Trapp, whose story inspired “The Sound of Music,” Elisabeth carries on a family tradition of Christmas concerts with this special show.  

Born and raised in Vermont, Von Trapp carries on the legacy of the internationally renowned Trapp Family Singers. By the age of 16 she was crisscrossing New England while performing with her siblings at weddings, gospel meetings and town halls.

Since then, she has performed around the globe, from European cathedrals to the Kennedy Center and the White House. She has released five albums and been featured on National Public Radio, BBC-Radio, Japanese National Radio and CNN Spanish Radio.

Von Trapp will be joined on stage by the majestic sounds of the Carolian Brass Quintet, an ensemble composed of some of the most talented musicians in the world. Members of the Carolian Brass have played with prestigious orchestras from the Americas to Europe, Asia and Australia.

Limited tickets remain for this festive performance.

“Our holiday shows are always popular, so tickets sell pretty quickly,” said Bunny Nash, Hatfield Hall manager. “It’s a great way to kick off the season.”


This holiday season, Hatfield Hall is offering Family 4-packs to its upcoming Family Series shows, Lightwire Theater’s DiNO-Light and Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo, for $30.

Fresh off their appearance on “America’s Got Talent,” last year’s Lightwire Theater performance at Hatfield Hall sold out well in advance. This season, the imaginative puppeteers of Lightwire Theater return with DiNO-Light, created by Corbian Visual Arts and Dance. Electroluminescent creatures light up the darkness in a poignant original tale for all ages.

Australia’s Erth Visual and Physical captivate audiences of all ages with their Dinosaur Zoo interactive show. Human-powered puppetry brings realistic creatures to life as the inhabitants of a prehistoric zoo, from insects to a T. Rex.

Tickets for “The Sound of Christmas” are $23-27 for adults and $15 for students. Family 4-packs for Lightwire Theater’s DiNO-Light and Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo include two adult tickets and two student tickets. Additional adult tickets for the Family Series shows are available for $10. Student tickets are $5.

Tickets may be purchased in person, by calling the Hatfield Hall ticket desk at 812-877-8544 or at Ticket desk hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays; noon to 5 p.m.  Saturday; and two hours before each event.
