For the Love of Lyric
September 13, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
September has always meant the opening of a new season at Lyric, and though we can’t be together for live performances this fall, Lyric is excited to present a free virtual concert from the stage of the Lyric Opera House.
The starry lineup is led by world-renowned soprano Renée Fleming and features special guests, including Tony Award® and Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter-actress Heather Headley, soprano Ailyn Pérez, bass Soloman Howard, and mezzo-soprano and Ryan Opera Center alumna J’Nai Bridges, with Doug Peck serving as music director. Members of The Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Opera Center Ensemble and members of the Chicago Children’s Choir will also perform in this enlightening and entertaining program of familiar and revelatory selections from the worlds of opera, Broadway, popular music, and some surprising sources.
