Lyric Unlimited Presents Chicago Voices Community Created Performances Stories and Songs of Chicago

Community Created Performances are original music theater works created and performed by Chicago groups using the core element of opera: storytelling through song.

As part of Lyric Unlimited’s groundbreaking Chicago Voices initiative, three incredibly unique groups have been selected for a “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity to bring their community’s stories to life through song. Join them at the Harris Theater for the culmination of their 15-week creative journey, when their stories take shape as unforgettable, fully produced musical performance pieces.
