LOON’s end-of-the-season fundraiser!

Streaming LIVE on Facebook & YouTube

Please join us for Lyric Opera of the North’s Virtual Summer Sparkler! Enjoy singing, visits with friends, and a look ahead to a new season of opera.

If, for any reason, you have to join us late or can’t make it, don’t worry – you won’t miss out. Video of the entire event will be available to watch online through August 21st.

Hosted by rising stars Sadie Cheslak and Georgia Jacobson, with pianist Bill Munson. 

The Summer Sparkler starts at 6:30pm with a Happy Half Hour. Get your snacks, gather your beverage ingredients (and measure them ahead of time with the recipe, below), and enjoy a highlight reel of fabulous LOON memories.

At 7:00pm, settle in for the main event which features gorgeous singing, visits with friends, a look ahead to a new season of opera, and, of course, fundraising!

Keep watching when the credits roll – Just like at a Marvel movie, you don’t want to miss what might be included there!

We’re looking forward to a little bit of summer singing and sparkle.

See you there!
