Luminescence Chamber Singers and Children’s Choir
Luminescence Chamber Singers is a virtuosic vocal consort. 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. 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. In recent years, Luminescence has appeared at the Canberra International Music Festival, the Performing the Jewish Archives Festival, and has collaborated with a diverse range of Australian artsits, including Amelia Farrugia, piano-percussion duo Tess Said So, Louise Page, Alice Chance, Gordon Hamilton, Dan Walker and Carl Crossin.
Luminescence is also the umbrella organisation for the Luminescence Children’s Choir, an auditioned treble choir for singers aged 7-17. Conducted by founding director AJ America, our Children’s Choir is dedicated to excellence in performance and offers young singers holistic and high quality musical experiences and education. At Luminescence, we explore the unique artistry of young voices, and delight audiences with moving performances that capture the joy and energy of our singers.
Luminescence comprises two ensembles, Little Lumi (ages 7-12) and the Concert Choir (ages 10-17). Since its inception in 2016, LCC have performed at national institutions such Parliament House and appear regularly at the National Portrait Gallery and the High Court. In 2018, they toured to Hobart and Melbourne to participate in the Festival of Voices, where they collaborated with some of Australia’s finest choirs, including the Sydney Children’s Choir and Young Voices of Melbourne, and performed in Hobart’s finest concert venues, including Federation Concert Hall and Hobart Town Hall. In 2019, Luminescence will tour to Sydney to participate in the Gondwana World Choral Festival, where they will perform alongside Gondwana Choirs at the Sydney Opera House, and sing with world-renowned ensembles such as the Toronto Children’s Chorus, The Estonian TV Girls’ Choir, Riga Cathedral Girls Choir, La Cigale de Lyon, and the Boston Children’s Choir.
