Soon, The von Trapps will truly say so long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, and goodnight.

Four grandchildren of Werner von Trapp—portrayed as Kurt in The Sound of Music—have been making music together since 2001. But Sofia, Melanie, Amanda, and August have decided to move on from music after one final show.

“Our family story as been shared in nearly every corner of the world. It has been a surreal honor to continue this musical tradition and be a part of such a hopeful message to the world for these last 15 years,” the band said in a statement. “We want to thank our family and friends who have supported and encouraged us throughout all of these adventures.”

The von Trapps released five studio albums between 2003 and 2008, recording standards from the classic Rodgers & Hammerstein musical, folk songs, and Christmas standards. The quartet teamed up with Pink Martini and Thomas Lauderdale to record 2014’s Dream a Little Dream, which featured Wayne Newton. Another collaborative session with Pink Martini spawned last year’s original EP, Dancing in Gold.
