As we continue the 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.
