What audiences are saying about Lyric Fest

“It's much more than just a concert. It's the feeling of being alive.”

“You are at the center of the world where music, poetry, and thought come together. You are inches away from the art, and there's no other group that is giving you that kind of emotional immediacy.”

Lyric Fest is a place to experience the unique power of the human voice in song. We bring together great singers, composers, history, biography, and humor. Here we tell our stories in song.

Proof of vaccination and masking is required for all Lyric Fest performances.
