An Evening at the Opera from the Thomas Ford Memorial Library

An Evening at the Opera

Our next big program is a really big program. It is so big we can not actually have it in the library. Our tenth annual An Evening at the Opera will be held May 7 at the First Congregational Church several blocks west of the library.

We usually have 200 people attend An Evening at the Opera, at which four members of the Lyric Opera of Chicago Chorus sing selections from the upcoming Lyric season. It is stupendous every year. Did I mention it is free?

We are able to have this wonderful program because it is sponsored by the Family of Pauline and Elmer Kennedy, who support the library in many ways in memory of their parents.

Janet Reynolds, a member of the chorus, makes the artistic arrangements, and the library makes the financial arrangements and publicity. It takes a lot of hands (and voices) to put together our biggest program of the year.

If you are in the Western Springs area on May 7, you should come to An Evening at the Opera.
