ICF This Weekend

The International Children's Festival received a couple of mentions in today's Washington Post Weekend section, including this piece on page 55. The festival is here both Saturday and Sunday, from 10 am to 4pm.

Several of us from Wolf Trap got a sneak preview of performances by children from Turkey, Qater, South Korea, and Hawaii at last night's ICF Gala and I'm looking forward to catching more this weekend.

The Crooked Road

Today's Washington Post Weekend section features an extensive cover story by Richard Harrington, "Old Time Music's Crooked Road: A Tuneful Drive Through History in Southwest Virginia."

In addition to being an interesting read, the article also mentions Abington, Virginia's Barter Theatre--the official state theatre of Virginia--and their production of "Man of Constant Sorrow: The Story of the Stanley Brothers," which comes to The Barns at Wolf Trap on October 26. The play celebrates bluegrass legends Ralph and Carter Stanley and includes 20 of their classic songs.

Check out the article in today's Post, drive the Crooked Road, and come out to The Barns at Wolf Trap on October 26.

Wolf Trap's October Through May Shows

Many people associate Wolf Trap with summer, due to the popularity of the 7,000 Filene Center. But the staff doesn't all just disappear when the warm months come to an end.

In addition to education programs that go on throughout the year and an opera company that keeps busy 12 months a year, we also have The Barns at Wolf Trap, an intimate, 382-seat indoor venue located just across the Dulles Toll Road from the Filene Center.

Shows at The Barn at Wolf Trap run from October through May and you can find all the shows that have been announced so far for the 2006-2007 Barns season on the Quick Sheet. Tickets to all these shows can be purchased online or by calling 877-WOLFTRAP (877-965-3872).
