Drawing its inspiration from today's headlines, lesbian feminist chorus Artemis Singers will devote a whole concert to songs about social justice, freedom and peace June 11 and June 18 in its Pride concert/dance, "Voices of Joyful Rebellion."
The June 11 show will take place at Broadway United Methodist Church, 3338 N. Broadway, at 7 p.m. The June 18 event will be at First Unitarian Church, 5650 S. Woodlawn Ave., at 7 p.m. ( Artemis Singers is cosponsoring the Hyde Park concert with Affinity Community Services. )
The "Voices of Joyful Rebellion" program includes "Arise," a feminist song for peace, from Mother's Day 1870, with words by Julia Ward Howe and music by The Righteous Mothers. A couple of the songs that will be featured are Holly Near's "I Ain't Afraid" and Bernice Johnson Reagon's "I'm Gon' Stand."
