A new partnership is giving teenagers a chance to become opera stars.

Young singers are part of a new program by Lyric Opera of Chicago and the Merit School of Music.

The two have joined forces to train teens to be opera and musical theater solo voice majors at Merit.

The partnership has inspired the creation of a more intensive opera and musical theatre track at the music school.
