The Halls Are Alive

We can't imagine what it's like for a child to have to live up to a famous (or infamous) surname such as Gotti, Trump, Brando or Astaire. Legacies like those come with a lot of baggage, but also a lot of opportunities--take, for instance, the singing siblings Sofia, Melanie, Amanda and Justin. Though the oldest is barely into her 20s, these sibs have already performed for sold-out crowds across the nation and around the world. Would they have had such success if their last name wasn't Von Trapp? The group performs folk and traditional songs, along with, of course, classics from The Sound of Music, the musical about their great-grandparents. The Von Trapps perform Friday through Sunday with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra at Bass Performance Hall, Fourth and Calhoun streets in Fort Worth.

Fri., Nov. 6, 8 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 7, 8 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 8, 2 p.m., 2009
