Center Stage from Wolf Trap
Sundays @ 7PM

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 programs include spontaneous conversation with hosts Rich Kleinfeldt and Lee Anne Myslewski. Located near Washington, D. C., the rebuilt eighteenth-century Barns at Wolf Trap serve as theater, concert setting and home to the Wolf Trap Opera. A veteran broadcaster and musician, Rich Kleinfeldt is known for his lively dialogues on classical radio programs. He performs with the Washington Saxophone Quartet. Lee Anne Myslewski mentors artists for Wolf Trap Opera's summer festival, and she programs the Chamber Music at The Barns series.
