    Public

    Choirs have consistently occupied a prominent place in Australian music-making since European settlement. Large choral societies flourished throughout the nineteenth century, giving concerts of popular oratorios such as Messiah and The Creation. As well as providing entertainment for both singers and audiences, choral performances then, as now, helped to cement collective identities at major public and religious events.
