Food and opera brought together at GSU’s ‘Opera Up Close’ program

Opera and food are like a fine duet.

Members of the Chicago Lyric Opera Chorus will bring the delights to life through food and the operatic music it inspired in a special “Music and Food Around the World” program at 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18, at The Center for Performing Arts at Governors State University.

The host for this event is Homewood resident and Lyric Chorus member Michael Cavalieri who will be joined by his colleagues Desirée Hassler, John Concepcion of Flossmoor, Pamela Williams and Dan Richardson on stage.
