Hear one of the most soaring, life-affirming anthems in the musical theater canon - "The hills are alive ..." from Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic "The Sound of Music" - performed in the beauty of the Boise Foothills this weekend. This is a concert performance of the story of Maria von Trapp and her family, who escaped from Nazi-occupied Austria by hiking across the alps. Guest artist Courtney Ruckman sings the role of Maria, a novice in a convent with an undaunted spirit. She becomes the nanny and eventual stepmother to the seven children of Capt. von Trapp (Boise baritone Jim Poston).
