Center Stage from Wolf Trap
Sundays @ 9PM

Center Stage from Wolf Trap showcases live performances from some of today's finest chamber musicians. Recorded in the acoustically superb Barns at Wolf Trap, these one-hour radio programs include unscripted and spontaneous conversation with hosts Rich Kleinfeldt and Bill McGlaughlin. Located just outside of Washington D.C., Wolf Trap presents more than 280 performances each year at its three venues. The Barns at Wolf Trap are among Washington's premier venues. Consisting of two rebuilt 18th century barns, the venue serves as a theater, a concert setting and home to the Wolf
Trap Opera. A veteran broadcaster and musician, Rich Kleinfeldt is known for his lively dialogues on the popular radio series Indianapolis On-the-Air. He performs and tours as a member of the Washington Saxophone Quartet. Conductor, composer, and radio personality Bill McGlaughlin won a Peabody award for his national radio show, Saint Paul Sunday. He has led orchestras throughout the United States and was Music Director of the Kansas City Symphony for twelve years.
