Sheroes: Women Who Inspire Us! A concert celebrating Women’s History Month

WHEN: Sunday, March 3, 2019 at 4:00 pm

WHERE: Irish American Heritage Center, 4626 N Knox, Chicago

WHAT: Artemis and several special guests (see below) will be performing many new pieces and a few old favorites.

We are celebrating famous women, current and historic, plus women leaders of our community and personal role models in our families. The Sheroes 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. 

Guest artists:

Kru Maekdo will speak about her Chicago Black Lesbian photo archives exhibit on display. Another featured speaker is Anna DeShawn, founder of E3 Radio, an online radio network that produces radio streams from a queer point of view. E3 Radio’s streaming programs blend music and talk to educate, empower and entertain. DeShawn is president of the board of directors of Affinity Community Services (Affinity), a social justice organization.

Spring concert – Sheroes

Our next Artemis concert will be “Sheroes” on Sunday March 3, 2019. In honor of Women’s 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.

We seek women singers who can carry a tune and are excited about singing in a lesbian feminist chorus that performs music written or arranged by women. That’s what we’ve been up to for the last 38 years!
