Become an Encore Circle Member

Encore Circle Lounge

Members of the Encore Circle make a more significant investment in Wolf Trap Foundation — with gifts of $3,500 to $25,000 or more annually—to support programs on our stages and in classrooms locally and across the country.

In return, Encore Circle members can enjoy premium benefits, like summer-long access to the Encore Circle Lounge, preferred parking near the Filene Center, the opportunity to purchase the best seats in the house, donor recognition, and invitations to special events.

Year round, Encore Circle members enjoy priority handling of ticket orders for all Wolf Trap performances, recognition in Wolf Trap’s performance programs Center Lines and Timbre, invitations to exclusive behind-the-scenes events, and all the other benefits offered to Associates level members.

Most importantly, support from Encore Circle members benefits the children, teachers, and families who receive access to the best in performing arts and education programs locally and nationally.
