Why:
This performance is an extension of Wolf Trap’s Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts, giving children an opportunity to experience live performance. Wolf Trap Institute programs help enrich and motivate teacher's professional development and engage young children in active, creative learning experiences. This renowned national and international program integrates the performing arts disciplines of drama, music and movement into classroom curriculum, frequently in low-income communities providing resources for children who may otherwise not have access to them. Schaefer, whose life has been intertwined with Wolf Trap since childhood, was the clear choice for this important commission. He boasts lifelong experience as a children’s performer and has a talent for creating stories and music that both engage children and support learning of important concepts.

We hope you can join us for this special occasion! Additional materials will be forthcoming after the event to help supplement your needs for a story.
