SANCTUS (Songs of Hope and Peace)
Directed by Glenda Lynelle
Accompanied by Helen Angove
Celebrating our 10th Anniversary With between forty and fifty members, Illumina Voices has built a fine reputation as a dynamic and popular women’s choir with a focus on choral excellence in a challenging and rewarding learning environment. As we continue our celebrations of our 10th Anniversary, Illumina’s next program reflects on the 100th Anniversary of Armistice, the effects of war and our dreams and hopes for peace to prevail across our lands. We acknowledge the hope foretold at Christmas and celebrate its coming.
Our repertoire draws on classical contemporary choral works, folk songs, excerpts from The Vocal Orchestra of Margaret Dryburgh, iconic Australian choral pieces and some dynamic Christmas repertoire. The Choir is thrilled to have our previous 2 Musical Directors – Rosemary Nairn and Deb Munro - join us as Guest Conductors. Guest Artists are Cantorae (Adelaide Vocal Ensemble) and Rosemary Nairn on pipe organ.
The choir is a not-for-profit organisation who proudly support health projects associated with women, children and families.
