It does appear to be Lilies (Lilium) of some type; there many listed here in our database (https://garden.org/plants/brow...) with photos and information but I don't know which yours might be.

Hopefully someone will recognize it and be able to offer suggestions as to species.

It's definitely a Lilium and almost certainly a hybrid.

Are you able to take a photo of the whole plant? My first guess is an Asiatic hybrid, but the thickness of the tepals and smaller bloom size is making me wonder if it's a Martagon division hybrid instead.
