Artemis Singers Presents: We Sing What Sparkles
We Sing What Sparkles
Artemis Singers, Chicago's lesbian feminist chorus, presents a concert Saturday June 15, 2019 at 7:00 pm, followed by a dance at 8:00 pm.
Continuing our tradition of Pride Month concerts on Chicago's south side, Artemis Singers invites you to join us for a choral concert followed by a dance with a live dj, DJ OCD (Wanda Rodriguez).
We Sing What Sparkles will be an interactive foot-stomping, heart-full, PRIDE-full concert immersing ourselves in the things that bring us together: friendship, love, grief, fun, and other joys of life. We will sing about the pieces of life that enliven us. We sing what sparkles as awakened memories and reminders of the precious value in our present moments in relationship.

About Artemis Singers
Preparing to celebrate our 40th anniversary in 2020, 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 produce public concerts twice a year and perform by invitation at a variety of events and locations.
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.
