Bring us all of your Dreams

A little over two months away is our next winter concert, Wildest Dreams. As we reflect on our 35 year herstory, we are proud of what Artemis Singers has accomplished and how many lives we have touched. In this next concert we’ll envision where we want to go next — as individuals, as a chorus, and as global citizens.

We’ll perform on Saturday and Sunday, January 23 and 24 at the Ethical Humanist Society in Skokie. Follow this link for more details.

You will be treated to wonderful melodies by Kristina Boerger, Andrea Ramsey, Holly Near, Kay Gardner, Joan Szymko, and more, coupled with inspiring texts from visionaries like Audre Lorde, Emily Dickinson, Ella Baker, Langston Hughes, and Jane Addams.

If you would like to honor a person or organization that inspires you, consider placing an ad in our concert program book. Learn more or reserve your ad here.

Sue introduces our second performance of Proud to be Me. At Beverly Unitarian Church

Our next new member night is Thursday, August 27. As member Allison reminded us, this date rhymes with “plenty of heaven.”

If you are a woman with Thursday nights free and you love to sing, 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 place, please let us know!

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

Happy Pride!

Artemis ProudWe just closed our 2014-2015 Season with a big dose of Pride. We performed “Proud to Be…Me!” on June 6 on the North side at Broadway United Methodist and June 13 on the South side at Beverly Unitarian. We are donating a portion of the proceeds of the June 13 concert to Affinity, whose mission statement is:

Affinity Community Services is a social justice organization that works with and on behalf of Black LGBTQ communities, queer youth, and allies to identify emergent needs, create safe spaces, develop leaders, and bridge communities through collective analysis and action for social justice, freedom, and human rights.

Happy Pride Month to all, and enjoy Chicago’s Pride March on Sunday, June 28.

Next up, a well-deserved summer break, followed by New Member night on August 27.  Contact us here or phone 773-764-4465 to let us know if you are interesting in joining the chorus. We’re open to women singers with a lesbian feminist inclination who are free to rehearse on Thursday nights. There’s no audition, but it would be great if you can match pitch and have some sense of rhythm. No need to be able to sight-read music. We are also always looking for people to volunteer with us behind the scenes.

Here’s how we showed our true colors at Broadway UMC:
