The performing arts foundation Wolf Trap announced Friday that its summer concerts will be cancelled for the season. Its concerts are a summer tradition for many in the D.C. area.
This marks the first time in the organization's nearly 50-year history that it will not hold summer concerts, according to a statement. The announcement came Friday that performances at the Filene Center and Children's Theatre-in-the-Woods from May through September will be cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The foundation said it plans to distribute new content online in the coming weeks and months.
Anyone who purchased tickets for one of the summer concerts will get an email with different options for refunds, or putting tickets toward future use.
A fund was created to accept donations in an attempt to offset the losses from the cancelled concert season. They ask that if people are looking to support the foundation or use money from their tickets to benefit the performing arts, they can do so through the Music Moves Us Fund.
