Chicago Voices Wants You

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

No matter where you live in Chicago, your community has compelling stories to tell. Lyric Unlimited wants to hear and share those stories through Community Created Performances, part of the new Chicago Voices initiative recently announced at The Hideout by Lyric Opera of Chicago and Lyric’s creative consultant Renée Fleming. Chicago Voices is a groundbreaking, multi-year initiative celebrating the city’s diverse music culture and exploring the untold stories of Chicago communities. Through Community Created Performances, Lyric invites groups of Chicagoans to share stories through song based on their unique communities and experiences. In partnership with the Chicago Public Library, applicants will utilize the 2016 One Book, One Chicago theme, Chicago: The City That Gives, to help frame the stories of Chicago communities. Groups should demonstrate how their community interacts with the city and how Chicago has been a part of defining that community. Applications are being accepted online through March 7 at created performances.
