Hello again! I'd like to let everyone know that our programming department is busily booking shows for the 2008 Filene Center season, all of which (to date) will be announced to the public on March 17 by our President & CEO Terre Jones during Wolf Trap's National Press Club Luncheon. I will hopefully have the chance to blog live from the event so please check in with me for real time announcements of our summer performers. Provided you are not a Wolf Trap member, tickets will become available for purchase on March 29 @ 10:00 a.m. through our website, box office location, phone, tickets.com outlet, etc.
Additionally, I'll be running a ticket giveaway contest, the goal of which will be to identify three summer 2008 performers from a random set of facts given by yours truly. So start thinking about who we might have already booked by doing your research on the rock, jazz, and country genres, (our schedule isn't limited to these three, but the artists I have in mind fall into these categories) and whether your guesses are appropriate for Wolf Trap's size and demographic. Contest details will go up about a week before the NPC lunch, and I will announce the winner on my blog on the 17th from the NPC.
In the meantime, who are you hoping to hear this summer? I'd love to see some comments with your 2008 summer Wolf Trap wishlist.
Tune in tomorrow for the video of the week...
