The Guild Board of Directors

Lyric Opera of Chicago Guild Board of Directors

The Guild Board of Directors was founded shortly after Lyric Opera of Chicago opened in 1954. Guild Board members serve as ambassadors for the Company to identify and cultivate new audiences and to raise funds. The Guild Board raises over $1.4 million annually to benefit Lyric Opera through personal and solicited gifts and special events.

For more information on the Guild Board, please contact Angela DeStefano at 312-827-5723 or adestefano@lyricopera.org.
