Gerber/Hart is excited to host a virtual panel celebrating 40 years of Artemis Singers!
Artemis Singers was the first women’s singing ensemble in the U.S. to explicitly label herself a lesbian feminist chorus, and she is dedicated to performing music written or arranged by women and thus highlighting historical, political, and personal events and experiences common to women. Artemis Singers’ initial meeting took place in June 1979, and the chorus was formally introduced in December 1980 at the second annual Chicago Gay/Lesbian Community Band and Windy City Gay Chorus concert, “Don We Now . . . II.”
Panelists will discuss the past, present, and future of Artemis Singers and include Ruth Clark, Meta Hellman, and Elise Dunham, moderated by Diana Clegg.
In of lieu ticket prices, Artemis Singers encourage attendees to make a donation to the Black Lesbian Archives https://blacklesbianarchives.wixsite.com/info via PayPal to email@example.com.
