Luminosa Voices are an excellent standard local choir with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Run by vocal specialist Rebekah Abbott who is Professor of Voice at the Royal Marines Band Service, she makes every rehearsal engaging and really informative. So, whether you are an experienced chorister, or you haven’t sung for a long time, Luminosa has something to offer every singer.
Anyone wanting to join the choir can join us for a couple of trial rehearsals before deciding whether to commit. At Luminosa, there is no audition, instead, after the end of the 2nd trial rehearsal, our musical director Rebekah runs a 5 minute vocal session, one to one, to ensure you are placed in the right voice part and go over any tips on technique.
We also have an audition only Chamber Choir and for those who have not sung for a period of time, we have a programme to support returning singers.
Luminosa perform a varied repertoire at three concerts a year, including from the words of Classical, Musical Theatre, Opera, Jazz and much more. We regularly perform ‘old favourites’ with orchestras, as well new works by composers such as Cecilia McDowall and have commissioned two works since our inception in 2010. Luminosa rehearse every Tuesday in the Alton Maltings Centre from 1945-2130 with a short break included. We often go to the local pub after rehearsals and have regular social and additional performing events, including a tour planned every other year. Please check out our social media pages to learn more about us.
Luminosa are recruiting all voice parts throughout the year to join our fun choir so do get in contact with us to come along to meet our friendly team and sing with us.
We look forward to hearing from you!
