Chicago's Performing Arts Companies featuring an opera singer

Would you like to enjoy an entertaining evening of music? If so, Chicago’s performing arts companies offer everything from world-class opera to instrumental music.

Highlights include:

Chicago Symphony Orchestra 

Called one of the world’s greatest orchestras, the Chicago Symphony dates back to 1891. The musicians dedicate their lives to musical excellence, and they have won more Grammy Awards than any other ensemble. Piccolo player Jennifer Gunn was hailed for her “virtuosic poise” by the Chicago Tribune. She’s equally comfortable on the flute and also teaches master classes around the globe. You can watch Jennifer and the other musicians now through the end of June.

Chicago Philharmonic 

Winning praise from audiences and critics alike, the Chicago Philharmonic performs at venues across town. The company’s extensive repertoire ranges from Baroque compositions to the modern songs of today. It features nearly 200 musicians from the metropolitan area and is recognized as one of the country’s finest symphonic orchestras. The Chicago Philharmonic is also the official orchestra of the Joffrey Ballet, and it frequently partners with other national arts organizations. The exciting 2019/2020 season runs through May 23rd. 

Lyric Opera of Chicago

Established in 1954, the Lyric Opera of Chicago is one of the world’s greatest opera companies. It features renowned conductors and international singers in both classic and lesser-known masterpieces. Lyric exists to provide a relevant cultural service to Chicago, and the 2019 season runs through the end of December.

The Lyric Opera House is one of North America’s most beautiful opera houses. It opened in 1929 just six days after the stock market crash. The first renovation was in 1996, and skilled artisans used 2,000 gallons of gold paint.
