Members of the Hillcrest High School concert choir and the mixed chorus attended a performance of “Oklahoma” at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, as part of the Student Matinee Series offered by the Lyric Opera.
Anthony Freund, the Lyric’s new artistic director, has added iconic American Broadway musicals to the traditional operas offered in the series.
The field trip downtown ended with a visit to Ed Debevic’s restaurant.
Vocal music students raise funds throughout the year for the field trips. The group is planning to see “Wicked” in the fall.
