Warm, atmospheric and stunningly beautiful, the voices of The Chamber Singers offered a true moment of calm before the Festive Season. As always, the concert concludes with mass carols under the starry skies of Barragga Bay, and mulled wine and mince pies.
The Luminescence Chamber Singers is a virtuosic vocal consort based in Canberra, Australia. Since the ensemble’s earliest iteration in 2013, Luminescence has earned a reputation for presenting exciting and excellent singing. The Chamber Singers perform a wide range of repertoire from the Renaissance to the 21st century, and frequently premiere new music by Australian composers, including emerging composers from within their own ranks.
