I hate it when events are one night only. Dreamworks Animation in Concert is coming to Wolftrap tomorrow night (June 30th) and I can’t go. Whine…. I live for concerts like this. It’s a fantastic way to introduce orchestral music to people who don’t like it. The concert features favorite moments from beloved films of DreamWorks Animation with music performed by the National Symphony Orchestra against the backdrop of large projection screens.
This weekend I finally dragged myself to Virginia to attend my very first show at Wolf Trap – one of our regions premiere summer concert venues. Generally I’m not a fan of attending concerts, especially outdoor events – it’s my anti-crowd bias and I’m a city slicker (ok, I live in the suburbs…), not a fan of the great outdoors. Wolf Trap is an indoor/outdoor hybrid where part of it is covered but there’s ample lawn space where you can bring a bunch of people to watch a show and have a nice picnic under the stars. My first show was the touring production of the long running hit Broadway hit Mamma Mia.
