Artemis Singers will celebrate 40 years as Chicago's lesbian feminist chorus with a free virtual discussion and Q&A, 3:30-5 p.m., on Saturday, Sept. 26.
Gerber/Hart Library & Archives is hosting this online event.
Artemis Singers, a nonprofit organization, specializes in performing music written or arranged by women. Artemis Singers President Diana Clegg, who will also moderate the event, said in a statement, "We will share stories, photos and music from the early years through to the present and discuss future plans."
The event is free, but registration is required by Friday, Sept. 25; visit GerberHart.org/events/artemis-singers-40th-anniversary-panel.
