A CHORUS OF PRAISE FOR LUMINOSA VOICES
Opera Choruses Review - St. Peter's, Petersfield, 13th July 2019
Luminosa Voices’ latest concert in St Peter’s Church, Petersfield, performing to yet another capacity audience on Saturday 13th July, did little to disappoint. The Choir, coming up to its 10th Anniversary year, left the audience in no doubt that they continue their reputation as one of the strongest choral sounds in Hampshire.
Led expertly and with great warmth from the rostra by Artistic Director, Rebekah Abbott, the programme comprised Opera Choruses from the era of the Baroque through to the 20th Century.
Luminosa Voices are excited to announce a vibrant new addition to our family of choirs 'Luminosa Rising Voices' an ambitious and inclusive choir for girls and boys aged 10-16.
Run by Rebekah Abbott, who is Artistic Director of the Luminosa family of Choirs, Luminosa Rising Voices is a new and exciting venture for young singers in and around Alton. Starting in September, we are keen to attract singers aged 10-16 in the local area who have a passion for singing.
Luminosa Rising Voices rehearse on a Tuesday evening at the Alton Maltings Centre from 5.45-6.45pm.
