A brand new voice in Australian Choral music

Lumens Chamber Choir is a new choral ensemble in Brisbane that performs repertoire from Renaissance to Contemporary music in the traditional choral style. This choir aims to provide young adult singers with the skills of collaboration and artistry that come from working in a chamber group. Their premiere performance was at St John's Cathedral 2021 Nocturnes Series, while their first community performance was part of a reflection of love, a concert given on the 18th of April at Brisbane 's Customs House.
