CONCERT A RESOUNDING SUCCESS
We are delighted to report that our Spring Concert of Mozart Requiem and Poulenc Gloria sold 250 tickets and we raised over £450 for our Charity, Challengers too. Thank you to so many of you who came to support us and our Charity. It was fantastic to see familiar faces in our audience as well as lots of new faces.
Luminosa are now looking forward to their Summer Concert which takes place on 13th July at St Peter’s Church Petersfield where we will be performing an evening of Opera Choruses with Guest Soprano Ella De Jongh, International Recording Artist Valentina Seferinova and much more. We are even serving summery bubbles in the interval from one of our Sponsors, Hattingley Valley Wines.
Tickets will be available from Ticket Source in the next few weeks, but please be aware, that as with our last concert in Petersfield, this will be a sell-out, so ensure you get your tickets early to avoid missing out!
We really look forward to welcoming you on 13th July.
