Artemis Singers, www.artemissingers.org, Chicago’s lesbian feminist chorus, presents “Embracing the Night” Concert of choral and popular music about finding inner strength. The program begins at 7 p.m., Saturday, January 20, 2024, at the Euclid Avenue Methodist Church, 405 S. Euclid Ave., Oak Park, Illinois. The nonprofit Artemis Singers, founded in 1980, specializes in performing music written or arranged by women. The concert features the Chicago premiere of Nigerian-American musician Ayo Awosika’s “How We Start Again.” On the program also is “Gamba Adisa,” by composer Joan Szymko, working from the words of the black lesbian feminist poet Audre Lorde. Artemis will present the song, “Night,” music by mid-20th century composer, Florence Price, who was part of the Chicago Black Renaissance, and words by Harlem Renaissance poet Bessie Mayle. The chorus is weaving popular music with choral works, including the haunting “She Lingers On” by Zanaida Robles. The concert is accessible.
