Chicago Voices Concert: Celebrate the Human Voice

This unique, eclectic performance is sure to be one of the highlights of Chicago’s cultural season! Join us for the Chicago Voices Concert and celebrate the glory of the human voice in its many styles. The Benefit Concert and After Party is hosted by Lyric’s Board of Directors and Women’s Board, co-chaired by Scott & Nancy Santi and Eric & Kim Smith. Premium package patrons will celebrate all night long in the Civic Opera House with a pre-concert reception, dinner curated by Chefs Karen and John Shields of Smyth + The Loyalist, and the Flip Side After Party celebrating the sights, sounds, and tastes of Chicago through a "street fest" ambiance — experience Lyric as never before! Urban Chic attire encouraged. Packages start at $25,000, and Individual Reservations ranging from $500-1,000 include tickets to both the concert and Flip Side After Party.
