Don Giovanni

Alumnus Nathan Gunn, the general director of Lyric Theatre @ Illinois and a star on stages across the planet, made a different kind of debut in Don Giovanni in 2018. Not only did he play the title role—a corporate raider living in Manhattan in this version—but for the first time he served as director of an opera.

Euphonium Players

How many ensembles can an euphonium player join? It depends on how much time you have in your schedule. From Basketball Band to a Lyric Opera @ Illinois pit orchestra to Brass Choir to Wind Symphony to the aptly named Tuba-Euphonium Ensemble, the choices are vast. Literally dozens of groups are open to other brass and wind instrumentalists, percussionists, jazz specialists, singers, string players, and electronic music makers too.
