Crazy that we're suddenly in the midst of the holiday season isn't it? What happened to the last few months? I hope everyone had a nice thanksgiving and is looking forward to some additional R&R towards the end of December. I enjoyed my Turkey Day up north with my dad's side of the family, and while my time at home was very relaxing and unfettered, my drive home on Sunday...was. NOT. MAN. Never again will I make that drive on that day. 13 hrs. in the car, through the rain, and worst of all...through NYC. But, I'm back now and have put that painful memory behind me :)
December is a bit of a slow month show wise here at Wolf Trap, but if you've been missing summer days at our Filene Center, we will present our annual Holiday Sing-A-Long this Sunday, December 7 from 4pm-5:30pm. As is tradition, the United States Marine Band will once again lead the audience in traditional holiday songs, alongside more than 400 members representing vocal groups from across the Washington, D.C. area. Admission is totally free, and no tickets are required! If you're feeling especially benevolent and philanthropic, donations of new, unwrapped toys will be gratefully accepted at the entrance for Toys for Tots, but are not required for admittance.
If you're interested in a glimpse of what to expect from a Wolf Trap Sing-A-Long, WETA just released its 2008 Guide to Christmas which features the event as one of the top 5 free seasonal music performances in the D.C. metro area. Surf to WETA, click on the WETA Guide to Christmas, and pay close attention between 9:22 and 10:20.
See you Sunday!
