A NEW Orchestra...
Our Vision is to give Galway City its first professional permanent orchestra. We want to shine a light on the outstanding musicians who join the Luminosa String Orchestra for distinction in performance, organization, innovation and community engagement. Members of our orchestra will reach their full potential in Galway and in an environment of musical excellence, integrity, artistic diversity and trust supported by a company with a strong financial acumen, a transparent business ethos and passion for success. The community will benefit from our forward-thinking and exemplary orchestra and it brings a new element of music education to the City.
WHO WE ARE
