Join us this June for our Pride Concert and Dance: Better Times will Come.
June 10, 2023 at 7:00 pm at the Irish American Heritage Center in Chicago
The concert will mark a return to our format of a Pride Concert followed by a Dance.
We are excited to present several world premieres:
- “Sista Switches,” an Artemis-commissioned piece by Regina Harris Baiocchi, a composer, author, and educator from Chicago
- “The Weaving” by Artemis Singers member Laurie Lee Moses, commissioned for our 40th anniversary season in 2020
- The choral arrangement of Chicagoan Patricia Tyson’s composition, “I Wish You Enough,” arranged by Artemis member Allison Downing
- The choral arrangement of Janis Ian’s “Better Times,” arranged by Artemis member Karen Mooney.
A wealth of woman-generated work, performed by a chorus focused on performing music written or arranged by women. This concert aims to be an uplifting, upbeat evening — a celebration of hopefulness highlighting our opportunities to create a better world and our better selves in it. Please make a plan to attend!
