Luminescence Chamber Singers

Luminescence Chamber Singers is a virtuosic chamber music ensemble comprised of eight young vocalists. Since the ensemble’s earliest iteration in 2013, Luminescence has quickly gained a reputation for presenting exciting and excellent singing. In addition to being soloists as well as choristers, many Luminescence artists are also conductors, composers, instrumentalists and teachers.

Luminescence Chamber Singers is also the umbrella organisation for the Luminescence Children’s Choir. The Luminescence Children’s Choir is a treble choir for singers aged 10 – 17 and is conducted and directed by AJ America, a founding member of Luminescence Chamber Singers.

Friday 15 December, 7.30pm, All Saints Anglican Church

Join the Luminescence Chamber Singers and Children’s Choir  for a moving concert of Christmas music for voices and cello.

Herald in the festive season with the sublime sounds of the Luminescence Chamber Singers and Children's Choir. Set in the stunning surrounds of All Saints Anglican Church, Ainslie, this concert includes uplifting reimaginings of well-known and much loved Christmas music. Music from composers such as Byrd and Britten are juxtaposed with contemporary carols by Australian composers such as Ben Van Tienen, Brett Dean, and the world premiere of a newly commissioned work by composer Meta Cohen. In Meta's mournful meditation on Christmas during the First World War, the nostalgic warmth of the holidays confronts the clamour and chaos of the Western Front and the pervasive presence of death - eternal silence, eternal night.
