Make the most of your LYP Membership

Explore these helpful tips to stay engaged, informed, and make the most of your Lyric Young Professionals membership.

Support Lyric

As the next generation of Lyric supporters, LYP is passionate about creating a sustainable future for opera. The Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Opera Center prepares emerging singers and apprentice coaches for careers in opera by providing unique, comprehensive training. Support for the Ryan Opera Center is part of LYP’s mission as we not only support the ensemble for their skills, but as vibrant young professionals themselves. Learn ways you can enhance your giving by exploring sponsorship opportunities on the LYP homepage.

Attend opera

In addition to making an impact at Lyric, members of the Lyric Young Professionals are eligible to purchase $35 Medley Series tickets! Members can book up to two tickets for a package of three or more operas from the Medley Series dates. New for 2022/23, additional Medley tickets at $35 are available to all members, pending availability in the LYP seating sections.

To become eligible, LYP members pay $100 dues plus a contribution to the Ryan Opera Center of whichever amount is comfortable for you.

Don't forget about the Medley Social Series! Meet us at the LYP banner on the American Airlines Mezzanine during intermission to network and chat about the performance.
