Lyric Opera Young Professionals Board

When I first moved to Chicago, I knew I wanted to see opera at the Lyric. Maybe if I was lucky, I’d get to see a couple productions a season. Then I looked on their website for ways to volunteer (maybe lead a backstage tour?) and I found the Young Professionals, an organization of passionate opera fans under the age of 45 who support young opera stars and raise awareness for the art form.

It didn’t take long before I joined the board, became the Social Media Chair, and saw every opera there was. Membership is up by over 300% and we’ve got an active and engaged presence on Facebook and Instagram. Check out some of the best posts and initiatives.
