Debbie Turner, former Arcadian and child star who played Marta in the 1965 Academy Award-winning “The Sound of Music,” along with three of her seven Sound of Music siblings (www.theSOM7.com) Angela Cartwright (Brigitta) and Kym Karath (Gretl), will greet attendees at the Taste of Arcadia from 5:30 p.m. – 9 p.m. Monday evening, Sept. 24, at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden.
Actresses Patricia and Michele Turner, also formerly of Arcadia and older sisters of Debbie Turner, will also be guests at the back-to-back Sound of Music tables near the entry area in the first-ever Business Showcase at the Taste.

Times Best Seller The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook with a “seal of authenticity.” They will also be offering books for purchase that will be autographed and personalized by Angela, Debbie and Kym.
