What is Chicago Voices Community Created Performances
Community Created Performances are original music theater works created and performed by community groups using the core elements of opera: storytelling through song.
Participating groups throughout Chicago, regardless of background or experience, will create and develop these original works which will be driven by the participants and will be supported by Lyric Opera professional artists and staff. The Sept 10 performance is the final of the season.
About the Harris Theater for Dance and Music
The Joan W. and Irving B. Harris Theater for Music and Dance is a 1500-seat state-of-the art performance venue located in Chicago’s Millennium Park. The theater is buried under Grant Park with a rooftop deck available for rent for private parties. The entrance is all you can see fro Randolph Street.
Opened in November 2003, the theater is a multi-use performance venue used by the Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Music of the Baroque, Chicago Opera Theater, Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s MusicNow and the National Museum of Mexican Art.
In other words, organizations that are too small to support their own theaters share the Harris Theater. The Theater supports these partner organizations with subsidized rental, technical expertise, and marketing support.
The Harris Theater’s primary mission is “to partner with Chicago’s music and dance performing arts organizations to help them build the resources and infrastructure necessary to achieve artistic growth and long-term organizational sustainability”.
