Monday at 6:00 PM

Chicago Month on WFMT is all about synergies. Lyric Opera’s program for nurturing young singers, the Ryan Opera Center, is ripe with those: during their WFMT recital series, Ryan’s singers presented a program on the topic of “Chicago.” Composers range from Jerome Kern to Richard Rodgers to University of Chicago’s Augusta Reed Thomas. Some listeners may remember when the University of Michigan-based William Bolcom wrote an opera on Arthur Miller’s “A View from the Bridge;” it was a Lyric commission premiered in 1999, and later performed at the Met in 2002. Monday’s recital offers two arias from that production; and, just to show a little range, the program ends with “Bear Down, Chicago Bears.” The Ryan Opera Center recital airs on Monday at 6:00 PM.
