announcements maestra masterclass Nov 16, 2023

Thank you for joining us LIVE on Instagram to announce the first ever Maestra Masterclass guest leader! We are elated to have Sofi Von Trapp share her wisdom and insight with members and non-members alike. This in-person masterclass will be happening at the end of January at the beautiful Aerie Retreat in Klamath Falls, OR, hosted by Aerie co-owner and Virtuosa Society member Natalie Vartanian.

If you're wondering why Sofi's name sounds familiar, perhaps you have heard of Georg and Maria Von Trapp whose story inspired The Sound of Music. Sofi is the granddaughter of Werner Von Trapp, the youngest son of the original Trapp Family Singers, who was portrayed as Kurt in the famous musical. She holds her heritage in high regard, having toured as a singing group with her own siblings growing up.

During her 15 years as a professional musician, Sofi studied Music Business at Berklee College of Music and became a band manager. She later began a 6-year career in qualitative market research as a consultant for corporations in various industries while earning a degree in Psychology at Oregon State University. She is now combining her experience in research, performance, business, and psychology to support mental health and career sustainability as a researcher and life coach for individuals in the performing arts.


Sofi will bring stories, advice, and tools to help silence the noise and find your creative voice in this inaugural Maestra Masterclass.
