7th Grade Opera Trip

On Wednesday, November 16th, the Lake Geneva Chapter of the Lyric Opera of Chicago (LGLOC) took Lake Geneva Middle School’s (LGMS) music students to Chicago to see a live opera.

This is the sixth year that LGLOC has provided LGMS with this opportunity. The entire experience for each student/chaperone/teacher, including transportation, the opera tickets, and a food stipend, was funded by LGLOC. It was a great experience for the students to ride the train, visit Chicago, view the architecture, and hear a world-class performance. 

This outing was part of the Lake Geneva Chapter of the Lyric Opera of Chicago educational outreach programs. To date, the LGLOC, which is a 501(c)(3) organization, has provided opera experiences to over 3,300 students. The LGLOC educational outreach programs are thriving with participation by 13 local schools, including Lake Geneva Middle School, Fontana, Reek, Sharon, Walworth, Williams Bay, Brookwood, St. Francis de Sales, Star Center, Eastview, West Side, Tibbets, and Jackson Elementary. The organization currently has a waiting list of schools that would like to participate in our programs.

Lake Geneva Schools is extremely grateful to the LGLOC for this wonderful opportunity for our students. 

LGLOC raises money to fund these programs through chapter events and donations from generous sponsors. For more information about the LGLOC and how you can support this great program, contact Gwen Faust at 262-767-8988 or [email protected].
