This Saturday, December 3 Wolf Trap’s Holiday Sing-A-Long returns to the Filene Center after two years of virtual performances!
Guests are invited to take part in this free tradition that dates back to 1968.
This Washington-area holiday mainstay features “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band and local choristers from the metropolitan area performing a variety of Christmas carols, Hanukkah songs, and seasonal ballads. Audience members will be invited to sing-a-long to holiday favorites, and can expect jolly appearances from special guests.
There will also be a “Jingle-A-Long,” during the singing of “Jingle Bells,” and attendees are encouraged to bring their own bells to ring along with the merriment. The event concludes with audience exiting the Filene Center in a candlelight processional during the last verse of “Silent Night.” Attendees are asked to bring their own candles (LED preferred) for this portion of the program.
Concessions will be open with warm seasonal drinks, but guests who choose to sit on the lawn can also bring their own picnics and make this a fun, family outing! Parking is free, but limited, so attendees are encouraged to arrive early for parking and bag check. The Wolf Trap Shuttle will not run for this event.
Wolf Trap’s Holiday Sing-A-Long started in 1968, when local choirs were invited to Wolf Trap founder Catherine Filene Shouse’s farmhouse to share in holiday mirth. A few years later, “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band and audiences were invited to the Filene Center and the concert took its current form.
Generations of holiday concertgoers have gathered since in celebration, and audiences have performed many of the same traditional songs throughout the event’s 50+ year history.
Prior to the start of the celebration, Wolf Trap will be participating in Toys for Tots, a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve. New, unwrapped toys will be collected at the entrance to the Filene Center. Donations are voluntary and not required.
Wolf Trap Holiday Sing-A-Long will take place on Saturday, December 3, at 4 p.m. Admission for the event is free and no tickets are necessary.
