Wolf Trap’s 50 Years

On July 1, 1971, thousands of families and friends traveled to Wolf Trap and gathered together for the first time under the soaring splendor of the Filene Center. Even with a bit of light rain, patrons stepped into the magnificent wooden pavilion in awe. As the first notes of the orchestra played over a hushed and eager audience, Mrs. Catherine Filene Shouse watched as her dream came to life.
