Meet the Challenge and Support Lyric in the Community

Lyric Unlimited Challenge Grant
Lyric Unlimited's The Magic Victrola
Each year, Lyric's education and community engagement division, Lyric Unlimited, brings opera and the arts to thousands of children, families, and adults throughout the Chicago region. Many participants come from low-income, at-risk neighborhoods where opportunities to engage in arts education and live theater are limited or nonexistent.

Lyric Unlimited programs are available to the public at little or no cost, and Lyric relies on the generous support of our donor and patron family to continue to offer these transformative initiatives. There has never been a better time to support Lyric Unlimited. We have recently received a challenge grant, and your new or increased contribution to Lyric Unlimited will be matched dollar for dollar by a generous anonymous foundation. Your support, designated to Lyric Unlimited, will open Lyric to thousands of Chicagoans each year. Through radical and surprising new opportunities for participation, Lyric Unlimited is extending Lyric's civic footprint and drawing in new individuals and communities, unleashing the creative potential that exists within our society. Your support makes it all possible.

“I had recently moved to Chicago. We went to Lyric to see Britten's A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I left the theatre, the melody of the final children's chorus filling my head. Waiting for the car, looking up at the beautiful buildings, hearing that haunting music in my head and then a soft, white snow began to fall. I was home. I will never forget that moment at Lyric.”
