In this week's news and notes, this past Sunday's Washington Post features Wolf Trap at 40. Check out even more photos in the online slide show here.
Also from the Washington Post, music critic Chris Richards gives two thumbs up to Dolly Parton performing to a full house Sunday.
WTOP's Man About Town Bob Madigan speaks with NSO @ Wolf Trap conductor Emil de Cou about Saturday's Casablanca screening which included the National Symphony Orchestra performing the score live.
Some albums hitting the shelves this week from artists performing at Wolf Trap this summer, include:
Greyson Chance who opened for Miranda Cosgrove at Wolf Trap last week, with "Hold on 'Til the Night." Critics are giving the new record, produced on Ellen Degeneres label, mixed reviews--some anticipating he may be the next Harry Connick Jr. and others less impressed with the "morose tracks."
John Hiatt, who will be at The Filene Center September 6, debuts "Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns." The Los Angeles Times has some of the back story and a review here.
