Guest Recital: Artemisia Vocal Trio
- Friday April 5 5:30pm
Chicago-based vocal trio Artemisia (Diana Lawrence, Alexandra Olsavsky, and Kaitlin Foley) harnesses the power of the female voice to explore complex social issues through the vocal traditions of the world. Praised for “sincerity, wit, and mind-blowing technique” (Vocal Arts Chicago), Artemisia brings diversity and accessibility to their programming. Not your typical stand-and-sing ensemble, Artemisia draws from a vast repertoire of vocal styles to take audiences on a journey of sound and spirit with every performance. In addition to performing, Artemisia works with community and youth ensembles to advocate for a culturally literate and socially aware approach to singing. Artemisia will be performing their show “Suit and Tie,” a program featuring music that was originally performed by/used by men, now sung by women. It is a fully staged, immersive show that explores gender in music and culture, told through the vocal music traditions from all around the world in an accessible and humorous narrative.
