Artemis Singers Presents: SHEROES
Artemis Singers, Chicago's lesbian feminist chorus, presents a concert Sunday March 3, 2019 in honor of Womens History Month. This afternoon concert will present songs and stories of strong women we admire women who made a difference, who stood up to power, who moved the people and worlds around them. Join us for a cabaret-style performance of songs and spoken word pieces from Artemis and special guests.
The Irish American Heritage Center's onsite pub, The Fifth Province, will be open before, during, and after the concert to serve you alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments while you enjoy the show. Cash and cards accepted.
About Artemis Singers
Still going strong after 35 years, Artemis Singers: Chicago's Lesbian Feminist Chorus is comprised of women with diverse backgrounds who are dedicated to performing music written or arranged by women. The chorus works to effect positive change in cultural attitudes toward women and women artists, as well as to increase the visibility of lesbian feminists.
Our goal in selecting and performing music is to provide an emotionally moving, spiritually and aesthetically uplifting, and politically motivating experience to our audience. We want to entertain, amuse, and educate; to highlight historical, political, and personal events and experiences common to women; and most of all, to share a sense of community with our audience. We put on public concerts once or twice a year, as well as performing at private functions and fundraisers by invitation.
Membership is open to all women singers, regardless of musical background. No audition is required.
We are a self-directed chorus; we have no paid director. Women who choose to direct Artemis Singers may direct one or many songs, and we may have six or more different directors during the course of any single performance. Our music is selected at meetings open to any member who chooses to participate.
