Calling All Youth Music Mixologists from Chicago: Enter the Lyric’s Opera Remix Competition | Chaz’s Journal

The Opera Remix contest encourages younger artists to cut, combine, loop, or warp authentic recordings as they please — no matter it takes to remix their work to its operatic heights. The winner will obtain a money prize of $250 and 4 complimentary tickets to the world premiere of “The Factotum” on the Harris Theater in February. Participants can submit their music at this link

Lyric Opera of Chicago’s premiere of “The Factotum” is impressed by Rossini’s traditional “The Barber of Seville,” with the setting and musical stylings of a present-day Black barbershop in Chicago. According to the official Lyric Opera website, Grammy-nominated baritone Will Liverman has joined producer/DJ/multi-instrumentalist DJ King Rico in creating this new work commissioned by Lyric. “The Factotum blends numerous musical types with boundless creativeness to create a soul opera, shifting from gospel and funk to rap, hip-hop, traditional barbershop quartet, and R&B,” reads the Lyric’s synopsis. “Those types join brilliantly with classical singing in a really human comedy that redefines every part that opera could be.”

Young artists who want to take part within the Lyric’s Opera Remix contest should stay within the higher Chicago space. Teens between the ages of 13-18 are allowed to use. Anyone underneath 18 should have dad or mum or guardian consent. Track submissions have to be uploaded to YouTube, SoundCloud, or different music streaming platforms with the mandatory entry settings. The submitted monitor have to be no less than one minute in size and now not than 4 minutes, and can’t embrace further samples from different songs aside from the 4 supplied by Lyric. Finalists should be capable to present the total audio file upon request.
