Join us to share the Pride and celebrate with a community dance!

In this “Voices of Joyful Rebellion” concert, we present songs of rebellion, including “Goddesses’ Rage” by Chicago composer Paula Walowitz, the source of our concert title: “This violation of all that is holy must stop. It’s gone on too long. Voices of joyful rebellion are swelling. The power of life is again growing strong.” Read more, including the press release.

In the proud tradition of Artemis Singers, we will be performing woman-affirming choral music written or arranged by women, providing opportunities for lesbians to be visible, expressing sometimes-radical political perspectives, and being an integral part of the Chicago feminist women’s community.

Saturday, June 11 at Broadway United Methodist at 3338 N. Broadway, Chicago (at Roscoe)
Saturday, June 18 at First Unitarian Church at 5650 S. Woodlawn, Chicago.

One thought on “2016 Pride Concert and Dance

  1. I loved the song, “Goddesses Rage” since first hearing it about 35 years ago at the 2nd Pagan Spirit Gathering. Please post it as well as your other songs on YouTube for all to hear. I know that I, for one, will be spreading the song far and wide.
