Terrence D. Jones to Retire From the Wolf Trap Foundation

"Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts announced today that President and CEO Terrence D. Jones will retire at the end of 2011 following 17 years of service leading the not for profit arts and education organization. Jones joined Wolf Trap in 1996 and during his tenure, has positioned the organization as a premier center for the integration of performing arts, education, technology, and environmental sustainability. Under Jones' leadership Wolf Trap has continued in the legacy of its founder, Catherine Filene Shouse, and has achieved numerous milestones and gained recognition as a top performing arts center. Jones' 40-plus-year career in the performing arts—combined with his business acumen—has enabled the Foundation to achieve increased operational effectiveness and financial strength to thrive and grow under his leadership. In the past 16 years Wolf Trap has achieved its highest grossing Filene Center seasons, exceeded a $1 million fundraising record through the annual Wolf Trap Ball in 2011 in support of Wolf Trap's education programs, and in 2003 opened the doors to the national Center for Education at Wolf Trap, a state of the art facility that is home to the Foundation's internationally renowned education programs and the GRAMMY-nominated Wolf Trap Opera Company."
