The concert will feature singers Ana Maria Martinez and Albina Shaimuratova in selections from “Madame Butterfly,” the mad scene from “Lucia di Lammermoor” and the Anvil Chorus from “Il Travitore.” A box lunch/dinner is included for use at Millennium Park before the 7:30 p.m. concert.

The motor coach will leave DeKalb at 1 p.m. to go to Chicago for a “Devil in the White City” tour (made famous by Eric Larson’s book). The group will return to DeKalb around 9:30 p.m. following the concert.
