Comstock Introduces Resolution to Celebrate
Wolf Trap’s 40th Anniversary
Richmond, VA – Delegate Barbara Comstock introduced
a Resolution commending the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts and
celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year. Wolf Trap was founded in 1971 by Catherine
Filene Shouse, who donated 100 acres of her Vienna, Virginia, farmland to the
United States government to be used by the Wolf Trap Foundation.
Joint Resolution 655, “Commending Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts”
has now passed in both the House of Delegates and the Senate and a center aisle
presentation will be held in the House of Delegates on Monday, January 31st
with Wolf Trap guests and members of the Northern Virginia delegation.
Delegate Comstock issued the
following statement about the Resolution:
“It was an honor to introduce this Resolution to celebrate
Wolf Trap’s 40th Anniversary and its unique contributions as the
nation’s only National Park for the performing arts. Through theatrical and educational
programs, musical performances, and programs for diverse audiences of all ages,
Wolf Trap has been instrumental in providing a wide array of cultural experiences
to our area and the rest of the nation.
For over 25 years my family and I have enjoyed Wolf Trap as a vibrant
part of our community. I’m so proud to support Wolf Trap and have
this national treasure in my district.”
