"Wolf Trap is the only place in the country where you can find Yo-Yo Ma, Robyn + Röyksopp, Lionel Richie, The Band Perry, and Josh Groban on the same season calendar, and that's worth celebrating. Our patrons have a dizzying array of options to choose from, and we look forward to sharing many amazing days and nights of music together at America's only National Park for the Performing Arts."
