Coming Up: Family of Friends Pride Concert and Dance

We welcome you to join us in June for a positive, upbeat concert celebrating families and friends.

We all have families – of origin and choice, of all kinds of connection. We create our families every day – for better and for worse. And for many of us, our friends ARE our families. We hope you’ll smile, laugh, and maybe cry a little.

We are all a big family of friends! Whether we know you already or not, you’re welcome. Whether you’re from the North Side, South Side, or suburbs, you’re welcome. So come and join us.

As always, our pride concert is followed by a kickass dance with great music, snacks, and fun!

Saturday, June 17, 2017
7:00 p.m.
First Unitarian Church, 5650 S. Woodlawn, Chicago
co-hosted by Affinity Community Services

Join us!

The next Artemis Singers new member night is Thursday, February 9. We will be preparing for our Family of Friends, Pride concert and dance, to be performed June 17, 2017.

If you are a woman, love to sing, have Thursday nights free, and want to be part of a lesbian feminist chorus, consider joining us!

We currently rehearse on the northwest side of Chicago but are looking for possible other venues that are more accessible by CTA train lines (we are currently accessible by CTA bus and Metra). If you have a lead on a rehearsal space, please let us know!

Please get in touch by using the Contact Us form and we will get back to you with more details.

Opportunity: Write a song for Artemis Singers!

Artemis is seeking to commission an original song – specifically, a feminist political song, related to or about lesbians. Artemis Singers will perform this song  during our 2017-18 season, as well as at the Sister Singers Network Festival.

This is a wonderful opportunity for a lesbian feminist woman composer with previous choral composition experience to get additional exposure for her talents, share an important message – and to receive payment for her work. We are looking outside the chorus for this work.

See more details here. Proposals are due September 1, 2016.

Thinking of joining Artemis?

861222_10152329976138761_1711690314_oArtemis weekly rehearsals are filled with song (obviously) and fun. Our songs are directed by chorus members, so each rehearsal is different.

Many members take active volunteer roles, serving as artistic directors, production managers, board members, and more.

We bond, often forming friendships that go beyond the chorus.

New member night for our spring 2015 season is this week–Thursday, February 19. Now’s the time to join, if you want to sing with us at our June 6 concert and dance!
