Ryan Opera Center Endowment Gift in Memory of Richard P. Kiphart
For more than 20 years, Tom Hurvis has been an avid supporter of Lyric Opera of Chicago, driven by a steadfast commitment to keeping our city a haven for the cultural arts. His leadership on the Board of Directors, Executive Committee, Innovation Committee, and Lyric Unlimited Committee has propelled Lyric forward in new and visionary ways. In 2017, Tom reaffirmed his tremendous generosity and commitment to Lyric with a significant gift in memory of his good friend and former board chairman Richard P. Kiphart to endow in perpetuity one Ensemble position in The Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Opera Center.
