By Jill A. Norris
Don’t want to spend your weekend in a barn? You may want to reconsider in order to attend the live performances of pianist Jim Brickman and Broadway star Jeri Sager at The Barns at Wolf Trap. Brickman will be playing live from April 18th to April 20th at 8:00pm, followed by Sager, who will perform on April 21st at 7:30pm.
Brickman is stopping in DC as a part of his Romanza Tour to promote his newest album. After starting his career as a commercial jingle writer, he is now a prolific Grammy-nominated pianist with 30 albums produced in the last 18 years. In addition to his music conquests, he is also a best-selling author thanks to his two books, Simple Things and Love Notes, as well as the host of a weekly radio show, Your Weekend.
Sager, originally from Northern Virginia, will be singing a selection of Broadway classics from Fiddler on the Roof, Les Miserables, Evita and Cats, as well as a few of her personal favorites. The upcoming release of her newest album, All-Broadway, will only add to her already successful career. She has also taken on small acting roles and can be seen in the 2011 film Country Strong.
Brickman and Sager are the latest in a long line of artists to dazzle audiences at Wolf Trap. The foundation is a nonprofit organization established by Congress and is dedicated to offering a year-round home for the performing arts.
The Wolf Trap is located at 1645 Trap Road, Vienna, Virginia 22182. Tickets to see Brickman’s performance are $35 and Sager is $25. Click here for more information.
