Youth Opera Council - Lyric Opera of Chicago


  • Lyric Unlimited’s Youth Opera Council is a group of Chicagoland high school students with a passion for opera and the performing arts. They meet regularly at the Civic Opera House, where members deepen their knowledge of opera through up-close experiences with Lyric staff, artists, and the day-to-day workings of the company. The Council also creates and hosts events and activities aimed at teen audiences.

Youth Opera Council
 is supported by Terry J. Medhurst and Michael Welsh and Linda Brummer.

Lyric Unlimited was launched with major catalyst funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and receives major support from the Hurvis Family Foundation.


Information for the various events throughout the season open to all interested high school students.
