Meet the Orchestra!

Ever wonder what it’s like to work in an orchestra pit? Hear about it straight from some of Lyric’s distinguished instrumentalists, who will talk about their lives in classical music and how they ended up in one of the most elite and competitive opera orchestras in the world. We’ll also explore under the stage and visit the orchestra pit.

Meet the Chorus!

Yes, it’s the same townspeople, Gypsies, church goers, soldiers, and partiers every time. The singers of Lyric’s renowned chorus perform different roles in every opera, sometimes in the background, sometimes in the limelight, always with world-class voices and great acting. We’ll hear all about it from several choristers and Lyric’s chorus master Michael Black, and we’ll visit a rehearsal space and set backstage.

October 20, 6-7pm
Civic Opera House

Complimentary wine and cheese at all sessions.
