Make a plan to join Artemis Singers for our pride concert and dance June 9, 2018 at 7:00 pm. We return to Hyde Park and the soaring gothic acoustically beautiful space in First Unitarian Church of Chicago, 5650 S. Woodlawn Ave. Plenty of street parking.
We’re world-premiering a new piece by effervescent chorus member Allison Downing called “I Chose the L,” asserting a clear preference. You’ll also hear our chorus’s first-ever performance of “Signs” by Ruth Huber, which artfully strings together protest signs seen at the Women’s March. And as if that wasn’t enough, we’re also world-premiering a new arrangement by our multi-talented Laurie Lee Moses called “Songs of Strong Sisters.” It’s every Sister-song we’ve ever sung distilled into one piece!
The concert theme is More than Music, reflecting the fact that as a community organization, Artemis provides a place where women come together to learn about each other, to harmonize, to socialize, to self-govern, to develop new skills, and to craft a performance. But at our foundation, we always come back to the music and to one another.
And since we’re talking about more than music…Artemis is delighted to welcome the stunning poet e nina jay as a guest artist. After the concert, you’ll definitely want to stay for the dance, with tunes spun by DJ OCD!
You can read the press release for quotes from our artistic/production team, or see them live in an interview with WCPT 820 radio show Out Chicago.
