About the Lyric Opera Chapters

In a Lyric Opera Chapter, opera lovers of all ages get together to enjoy lectures, musical performances, events, volunteer opportunities, and each other's company. Each Chapter is chartered with the dual purpose of providing educational programs in their communities and raising money to support community-engagement and educational programs at Lyric Opera of Chicago.

Chapter memberships start at $100 annually ($75 donation to the Lyric Annual Campaign and $25 for Chapter dues). You are welcome to join multiple Chapters by paying $25 for each additional Chapter dues, once the minimum $75 annual donation has been made. Further, you can add your spouse or partner for $25 per Chapter.
