Artemis Singers Presents: MORE THAN MUSIC
TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR!

Come share the Pride and celebrate with a choral concert and community dance! We'll have DJ OCD spinning for this Hyde Park event on June 9.

Join Artemis Singers this June for a positive, upbeat concert celebrating More Than Music, with guest poet, e nina jay, author of Body of Rooms. A portion of the event proceeds will benefit Affinity Community Services.

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. And that in turn often leads us to themes of peace, community-building, and social justice. We dont 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.

In selecting songs for this concert, we went to the heart of who we are and chose themes and approaches that express the core of our identity as a lesbian feminist community.

We will be performing many of these songs at the Sister Singers Network Festival this summer in Grand Rapids. We try to bring to the network songs that we find most meaningful and musically interesting. We like to introduce music that other choruses may wish to adopt for themselves and to highlight our own composers, arrangers and lyricists.

****************************************************
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.
