Covid-19 Performance and Event Update from Wolf Trap

The health and well-being of the Wolf Trap community is at the heart of our decision-making. After careful consideration for our patrons, artists, and staff, the 2020 Summer schedule of performances at the Filene Center is being reconfigured. Hold on to your tickets, as all current tickets will be honored on the rescheduled performance dates. We hope to see you then!

If you are unable to attend a rescheduled performance, or if a show is cancelled, ticket purchasers have the following options:

  1. DONATE your tickets to turn your ticket purchase into a contribution, and the value can be treated as a tax-deductible charitable contribution to Wolf Trap Foundation. We rely on donor support to help us sustain our operations and serve the community.*
  2. EXCHANGE your tickets for a Wolf Trap gift card to use on future ticket purchases or at concessions
  3. RETURN your tickets to receive a refund** 

Please contact or call 703.255.1868 should you want to act on any of the options above.

*Not only will you be helping Wolf Trap Foundation continue to program meaningful shows and educational outreach for the future, but the CARES Act allows a new $300 above-the-line charitable deduction for individual taxpayers who take the standard deduction. And, if you itemize your deductions, the CARES Act has increased the AGI charitable contribution to 100% of AGI for 2020. This means that you can get a charitable contribution deduction for the full amount of your Adjusted Gross Income.
