LUMENS CHAMBER CHOIR
A brand new voice in Australian Choral music
Lumens Chamber Choir is a choral ensemble that was formed in 2021 as an initiative of the Brisbane Chamber Choir. Directed by Kathryn Morton, this auditioned chamber group is suitable for focused singers aged 18 – 28 years and performs repertoire from Renaissance to Contemporary music in the traditional choral style. This ensemble aims to provide young adult singers with the skills of collaboration and artistry that come from working in a chamber ensemble. Their 2022 season includes varied performances around Brisbane and further areas of South-East Queensland.
