We are honored to host our fourth Musique et Cuisine series with our talented neighbors at Wolf Trap Performing Arts Center.  Catherine Filene Shouse, Wolf Trap’s visionary founder and gourmand, was a frequent L’Auberge Chez François Sunday dinner guest who dined with Papa Haeringer on Sunday afternoons for many years.  We are proud to continue this relationship and friendship for decades.

These Wolf Trap Opera’s Filene Young Artists have performed on some of the country’s premiere operatic stages, including those at Washington National Opera, The Metropolitan Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Los Angeles Opera, San Francisco Opera, and Lyric Opera of Chicago.

They bring some of the brightest vocal talent to Wolf Trap’s stages every summer, and to the always “sold out” Night at the Opera performances at L’Auberge Chez François!  They will provide an evening program centered on French Music, and Chef Jacques’ six-course garden inspired menu paired with three fine Sommelier chosen wine pairings.  Bravo! Bravo!
