Limited seats are still available for the Northern Illinois University Annuitants Association trip to the Stars of the Lyric Opera concert in Chicago’s Millennium Park on Sept. 7.

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.
