Choirs in Australia
On 8th December 1931 at the Assembly Rooms in
Pier Street, Mr A.J. Leckie raised his baton to
conduct the first appearance of the newly formed
UWA Choral Society in a performance of
Stanford’s “The Revenge” and a selection of part-songs. There was no orchestra, Miss Elsie Watson
accompanying the choir on the piano.
Under a series of conductors including Percy Grainger, Dr.
(later Sir) Malcolm Sargent and Sir Thomas Beecham, the Society has performed both on
its own and with other groups, a diverse range of
2011 marks 80 years of choral singing. This
coincides with the University of Western Australia's
centennial and great things are happening this year!
