The chorus master of the Lyric Opera of Chicago is leaving the company.

Donald Nally will step down following the 2010-2011 season. He has been chorus master since 2007.

The Lyric Opera says Nally is leaving to pursue other interests in choral conducting.

Earlier this month, Lyric Opera General Director William Mason announced he will retire at the end of the 2010-2011 season.
