Peter Zimmerman Resigns

Peter Zimmerman, the programming director of Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts in Vienna, Va., has announced he is stepping down after 17 years in the position.

“In bocca al lupo. My time at Wolf Trap has been deeply rewarding and I am grateful to all the people who have made Wolf Trap a wonderful place to come to work every day,” Zimmerman said in a statement. “I’ve had incredible opportunities to work with some of the finest artists, agents and managers in the business, not to mention the wonderful colleagues at Wolf Trap Foundation and Wolf Trap National Park. I’m looking forward to this next chapter, which will certainly include many visits to Wolf Trap to enjoy shows.”

The decision comes on the heels of a stroke earlier this year, followed by a medical leave.  Zimmerman is progressing toward recovery, according to the statement.
