Luminosa Rising Voices


Luminosa Rising Voices is a fresh, new, ambitious and inclusive choir for girls and boys aged 11-16.  Run by Rebekah Abbott, who is Artistic Director of the family of four 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. 

Down to earth and fun, we have formed the choir because we believe there is a gap in opportunities for young people who are interested in exploring a range of styles from Musical Theatre, to Classical and Contemporary Music.

The focus will be on vocal technique as in a singing lesson; including how to breathe properly, how to engage and utilise the correct muscles to support the voice and how facilitate a free and resonant sound capable of subtlety, expression and power, that will blend with others.

The aim is that this choir has a different ‘feel’ to the Young Voices, with music picked by all of us, a committee made up of members' (when we get large enough) and the opportunity to enter some really exciting competitions which will put us on the map, all done with a real love of singing and being ‘the best we possibly can be’ at the core of what we do.

We know that musical education, particularly singing has been shown to be extremely beneficial to the development of young minds. It has stress reducing qualities and academic benefits. Music making promotes team-building and interpersonal skills and bolsters confidence and self-esteem.

We explore a broad range of music which enriches young peoples’ understanding of their own culture and those of others around the globe.  The music we sing will focus on a balance between pieces which will be picked by our members, as well as singing pieces which in preperation for concerts and competitions. 


Luminosa Rising Voices rehearse on a Tuesday evening at the Alton Maltings Centre from 5.45-6.45pm.  For more information and to come along to a free sample session, please contact the choir’s operations manager, Mike Rawlins:, visit the choirs’ Facebook page: Luminosa Young and Rising Voices or visit the website
