Elizabeth Narut is presented a check from Lake Geneva Chapter of Lyric Opera representatives, Vivian Fabbro Keenan, president; Peter Connolly, vice president, and; Mike Sarton, treasurer. Narut arranges field trips for area students to the Lyric Opera of Chicago underwritten by the local chapter.

Chapter members’ donations cover all costs for field trips

More than 135 seventh grade students from Fontana, Reek, Sharon and Walworth elementary schools will attend Turandot at the Lyric Opera of Chicago Jan. 19, 2018.

On March 21, 2018, 160 students from Lake Geneva Middle School will experience Faust at Lyric Opera.

The Lake Geneva Chapter of Lyric Opera of Chicago underwrites these student outings and board members Vivian Fabbro Keenan, president; Peter Connolly, vice president, and; Mike Sarton, treasurer recently presented a check to Elizabeth Narut. Narut arranges the field trips – which include bus and train transportation, opera tickets and a food stipend for each student and chaperone.

Additionally, the chapter provides a Lyric Opera vocal artist/teacher to visit each school and provide pre-opera education sessions. These sessions enhance the students’ understanding and enjoyment of the opera experience.

By March 2018, the Chapter will have sent more than 1,100 Lakes Area students to attend an opera at Lyric Opera of Chicago, thanks to donations by chapter members.

The Chapter hosts four musical programs each year at country clubs and private residences – a pianist and three professional opera vocalists perform show tunes and opera arias. Refreshments are served and attendees enjoy an elegant evening together.

“Join the fun and learn about how we support the students in our community,” a press release from the chapter states.
