The Sister Singers Network will be hosting their 10th National Choral Festival in Chicago at Loyola University Chicago’s Lake Shore campus beginning Thursday, July 1 and continuing through Sunday, July 4. The Sister Singers Network is, “a cooperative web of feminist choruses and ensembles, composers, arrangers, and individual singers working together to support and enrich the women’s choral movement.” (http://www.sistersingers.net)
Participating in the event is Chicago’s own Artemis Singers, which is a lesbian feminist chorus “comprised of women with diverse backgrounds who are dedicated to performing music written or arranged by women.” The goal of this choir is to foster positive change in the cultural attitudes towards women, as well as women artists, and increase the visibility of lesbian feminists.
