Chicago VoicesChicago Voices is an exciting new Lyric Opera initiative spearheaded by Renée Fleming that celebrates Chicago’s vibrant and diverse vocal music scene. The two-year program invites Chicagoans to take part in events that celebrate the city’s unique vocal heritage, while also encouraging them to tell their own stories through song. Our mobile video van captured more than 200 everyday singers. You can add more to the growing chorus by sharing your video online. Learn how at chicagovoices.org/sing.
