Artemis Singers is about more than music.

We sing music written or arranged by women. That is what we do. We work to effect positive change in cultural attitudes toward women and women artists, as well as to increase the visibility of lesbian feminists. In doing that, we explore the roots of who we are as women, as lesbians, as feminists. That in turn often leads us to themes of peace, community building, and social justice. We don’t always get along. Our meetings and rehearsals are sometimes less than harmonious. But whatever else happens, we always come back to the music and to one another.

Want to sing with us? Join us for new member night on Thursday, Jan 25!

More details to come!

Directions to the Workshop and Concert on Saturday

We’re so glad you’re coming! Note that Evanston Township High School is beautifully large! So you may want to familiarize yourself with the lay of the land.  The address is 1600 Dodge Ave., Evanston, Illinois.

Click here for an enlarged Parking lot map.  Please park in Lot 2 on the West side of the school. Turn on Wildkit drive from Church Street.

ETHS Parking

From the parking lot or if you are on foot or taking a car share or taxi, enter Door 2, which is prominently marked. Then you are headed for the Arts wing (marked orange on the map below).

The workshop is located in room A252 on Floor 2.  Directly above that is where we have the concert in the Upstairs Theater on Floor 3.  There is an elevator very close to the workshop location and also to the Upstairs Theater.  Look for the overhead signage in the building. We will have some people posted in the hallways to help out.

(In the map below, North is to the right.) Give yourself some time to get from the building entrance to the venue. As we said, this building is large!

We’re ready to Rise Up. You?

Join us on Saturday, January 13, 2018 as we come together to protest, to sing; to take issue, to sing; to satirize, to sing; and to speak truth through singing!

Here’s the latest PSA (public service announcement) from WCPT 820 AM:

We are beyond happy to welcome our special guest artist Melanie DeMore, vocal activist, singer-songwriter, and choral conductor. Not only will Melanie be singing during the concert, but she is also leading a workshop during the day to show people how they can use their voices to express themselves and create change. The workshop is open to the public. Come!

DeMore has performed on stage with Holly Near, Pete Seeger, Odetta, Richie Havens, Linda Tillery, Judy Collins, and Laura Nyro, among many others.

The concert “Rise Up!” is at 7:00 pm at Evanston Township High School (ETHS) Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018, at 1600 Dodge Ave., Evanston, Ill.  The workshop is on the same day at ETHS from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. If you want to join us for the workshop (no previous singing experience necessary!), you need to register in advance by January 6. Here’s where you can register and buy tickets:

If you are only attending the concert, you can buy tickets in advance or at the door. There’s a range of price discounts for advanced sales, seniors, students, and kids.
