Terre JonesIn case you missed it, The LA Times had a great article the other day about the role that the arts can play in tough economic times: “We know from the 1930s that the stimulating effect of art and entertainment comes … in the emotional links with the public that absorbs this work and takes it to heart.” We’re certainly a long way from a Great Depression, but most of us would probably agree a little upliftment might be in order. Which is why ExecutiveBiz recently caught up with Wolf Trap’s president and CEO, Terre Jones. For nearly 40 years, Wolf Trap has been a local institution, showcasing the best that the performing arts has to offer. Here Jones fill us in on the latest at Wolf Trap, with a lineup that will last well into the summer.

What“™s the no. 1 thing people may not know about Wolf Trap?

Terre Jones: A lot of people think of Wolf Trap first and foremost as an outdoor summer venue, which we are, but our attractions don“™t stop there. Right now we have The Barns going on. The venue offers a wide range of live performance options, including our classical chamber music series, “The Discovery Series,“ which presents young classical artists in the small Barns concert setting, an intimate space with about 400 seats.  At intermission, you get to ask questions of the artists, which is pretty unusual.

Can you share your upcoming lineup?

Terre Jones: The Pacifica Quartet, which is a wonderful string quartet, is coming up in early April. Barrage, is a high octane fiddle group from Canada that will perform in April as well. On the other side of the musical map, John Eaton does a great jazz program, “The Music of the 40s.“  Tom Paxton, a great folk artist, is coming up, and Chuck Brown. We“™ve got an evening of comedy at the end of the Barn season, in early May.
