Lyric for kids

There's no better time to instill a love of music and opera in young people than during their childhood. Each year, Lyric reaches thousands of young people with music through programming created for student and teachers, families, and communities all around the Chicagoland area

Whether you're interested in exploring our learning resources, designed to educate kids on individual operas, or some of our fun activities,  you'll find ways to educate, encourage discussion and discovery, and entertain through music.

We invite you to share it with your friends and to check back weekly as we add more videos and activities for you to enjoy!
