2017-2018 Season Events

June 27 – July 1, 2018   Sister Singers Network Choral Festival,
“More than Music Here”

We traveled to Grand Rapids, Michigan for the 12th Sister Singers Network Choral Festival. Artemis Singers was one of 20 choruses from around the country at this wonderful event hosted by the Grand Rapids Women’s Chorus. We performed our set on Friday night and then joined one of the two Mass Choruses Saturday night to perform 4 pieces. It’s an incredible experience to perform for almost 600 women from other choruses, and to hear all of their creative, moving, funny, and breathtaking performances.

These choral festivals are held every four years. Artemis hosted in the 1980’s and then again in 2010.  Hmm, maybe you would like to take part in a festival like this. Join Artemis now and you can be a part of it all in 2022!

More Than Music – Pride Concert & Dance

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. This concert features those important themes and includes a reading by guest poet, e nina jay, author of Body of Rooms.

And then we’ll dance!! With DJ OCD at the mixer.

Location: First Unitarian Church of Chicago, 5650 S Woodlawn Ave, Chicago
Advance Tickets: Online at morethanmusic.brownpapertickets.com or in person from any Artemis Singer. $15 general / $10 children/students/seniors.

  1. I am trying to hear your chorus. I know why I want to join your chorus. I want to sing! I so want to hear the type of music you perform!

  2. I sing with the Brooklyn Women’s Chorus. We sing socially relevant songs, many written by our director, Bev Grant. Are you ever in New York? Would love to have a joint concert.

    • Artemis Singers loves the idea of joint concerts! Though our budget doesn’t send us out of the Midwest very often, we encourage you to join Sister Singers Network (www.sistersingers.net). Sounds like you’re definitely our sister singers, and maybe we’d be able to join up with you at a Sister Singers Network festival!

      We’ve done joint concerts in the past with Sistrum (Lansing, Michigan, women’s chorus), MUSE (Cincinnati’s Women’s Chorus), Bread and Roses (Dekalb, Illinois, women’s chorus), Hersong (Quad Cities, Illinois, women’s chorus), Womonsong (Madison, Wisconsin, sadly not operating any more), and Mukwanago (Wisconsin) Feminist Singers and Eaters (sadly not operating any more).
