Artemis Singers Presents: Family of Friends
Join us to share the Pride and celebrate with a community dance! We'll have a live DJ spinning for this Hyde Park event on June 17, cohosted by Affinity Community Services.
Join us this June for a positive, upbeat concert celebrating families and friends.
We all have families of origin and choice, of all relations. We create our families every day for better and for worse. And for many of us, our friends ARE our families. We hope youll smile, laugh, and maybe cry a little.
About Artemis Singers
Still going strong after 35 years, Artemis Singers: Chicago's Lesbian Feminist Chorus is comprised of women with diverse backgrounds who are dedicated to performing music written or arranged by women. The chorus works to effect positive change in cultural attitudes toward women and women artists, as well as to increase the visibility of lesbian feminists.
Our goal in selecting and performing music is to provide an emotionally moving, spiritually and aesthetically uplifting, and politically motivating experience to our audience. We want to entertain, amuse, and educate; to highlight historical, political, and personal events and experiences common to women; and most of all, to share a sense of community with our audience. We put on public concerts once or twice a year, as well as performing at private functions and fundraisers by invitation.
Membership is open to all women singers, regardless of musical background. No audition is required.
We are a self-directed chorus; we have no paid director. Women who choose to direct Artemis Singers may direct one or many songs, and we may have six or more different directors during the course of any single performance. Our music is selected at meetings open to any member who chooses to participate.
