Suit and Tie Show Empowers Women, "Raises the Bar" for Chamber Ensembles
Artemisia's recent production - "Suit and Tie" - served up a rich platter of gender-bending, globally-saturated sounds in a compelling and inspiring program of male music presented through a female perspective.
This show will soon re-take the stage in some fresh new venues. Stay tuned for more!
Cactus + Salonathon
At a second appearance at Chicago's own Salonathon - home for underground, emerging, and genre-defying art - Artemisia entertained the audience with an arrangement of the Comedian Harmonist's tongue-in-cheek piece, "Mein kleiner grüner Kaktus." (Translation: My little green cactus.)
