The Luminescence Chamber Singers is Canberra’s premiere vocal ensemble.
Since the ensemble’s earliest iteration in 2013 Luminescence has quickly gained a reputation for presenting exciting and excellent singing, performing a wide range of repertoire from the Renaissance to the 21st century. Luminescence seeks to give voice to human experiences of all kinds and to champion to vocal arts as a uniquely human mode of creation and communication.
In addition to a diverse annual concert season, Luminescence appears regularly for the Canberra International Music Festival and for the Four Winds Festival, and has presented performances in some of our most iconic national institutions, including the National Portrait Gallery, the High Court of Australia, and the National Portrait Gallery. Luminescence is also a regular collaborator with conductor Roland Peelman, and has performed alongside many of Australia’s leading ensembles, composers and conductors, including Ensemble Offspring, the Song Company, Gondwana Choirs, Four Winds Festival, Elliott Gyger, Alice Chance, and Carl Crossin. Closer to home, Luminescence delivers regular workshops and local collarborations, including performances many of Canberra’s local choirs and orchestras, including Canberra Sinfonia, Oriana Chorale, Radford College Choir, A Chorus of Women, and the Wayfarers.
