We’ve been invited back (we performed with them earlier this summer) to join Dreamboat iO, an LGBTQIA+ performance group that is part of iO, the renowned improv theater. We will perform a set of choral music as part of the evening’s lineup.
Join us there on Friday, Nov 1 at 8:00 pm. You can buy your tickets here: TICKETS

As part of our 40th anniversary celebration, we are collecting stories from women in the Chicago lesbian and/or feminist community (or who were a part of those communities any time over the last 40 years).
We will select some of these stories — either attributed or anonymously, as you choose — and present them as part of our Spring 2020 concert. We believe that our experience in Artemis is part of a larger story of the women’s movement, and we believe that your stories will help us paint that larger picture.
Here are some of the topics you might want to relate:
- A story about going to women’s bars
- A story about women’s music – how a musician or song made a difference in your life
- A story about becoming enraged at the patriarchy
- A story about a time in history such as the fight for the ERA or for marriage equality
- A story about fighting racism in our community
- A story about celebrating with other women – retirement or some other big life event
We have held two successful workshops (the most recent was 9/24) and the third one will be:
Rogers Park – Chicago Public Library
Tuesday, October 8, 3-5:30 pm
6907 N. Clark Street
No need to register, just show up to join us.

You may have heard by now that Artemis Singers will celebrate 40 years as a chorus next year in 2020. Do you know what other Chicago feminist organization is at the 40 year mark? Women & Children First Bookstore!
They are marking the occasion by holding a block party on Saturday, August 24, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm in Andersonville near the store. And guess who is among the entertainers — yes, your favorite lesbian feminist chorus, Artemis Singers.
