— A Tribute to Women in the Arts by Women in the Arts
Award-winning female singers are centerstage for our 2022 International Women’s Day (IWD) concert celebrating this year’s IWD theme, “Break the Bias.” The concert is presented by Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and Oak Park’s Bellissima Opera, an initiative of Working In Concert.
Headlining the event are sopranos Michelle Areyzaga, Jonita Lattimore and Christine Steyer, and contralto Corinne Wallace-Crane, with collaborative pianists Dana Brown and Jennifer McCabe.
Guests artists are M.G. Bertulfo, emcee and author, who will read from her novel-in-progress about a young Filipino girl, and Kumu Hula June Kaililani Tanoue with a performance by Halau I Ka Pono (The Hula School of Chicago).
Images by Japanese artist Mimei Sakamoto serve as magnificent backdrops.
Tickets: $10 students, $25 regular, $40 with onsite VIP reception with artists.
We thank the Illinois Arts Council ArtsTour program for its financial support of this program, “acknowledging that access to the arts is vital to all Illinois residents.”
Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is located at 611 Randolph Street, Oak Park.
The building is accessible and free street parking is available.
