THE MESSIAH IS COMING TO FARNHAM
Join us at St. Andrew's, Farnham on the 23rd Nov for what promises to be an exciting start to our 10th anniversary season.
Expert training by Artistic Director and Conductor, Rebekah Abbott, coupled with high-quality instrumentalists and soloists mean that long-time lovers of this much-loved music will particularly enjoy this lightly abridged version, and others less familiar will enjoy a wonderful introduction to this scintillating work.
We will be accompanied by the Surrey Chamber Players who have earned a reputation for imaginative, exciting programmes across a wide repertoire. We are delighted to welcome back soloists Michaela Parry (contralto), Ed Hughes (tenor)- and Ben Cooper (bass), of the Glyndebourne Opera Company, and our very own Rebekah Abbott (Soprano) together with Richard Copland on organ.
Tickets are likely to be in high demand book early to avoid disappointment.

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.
