130 years of female choral singing in Central Australia

Chris Bowen · November 26, 2014

Where is the longest running women’s choir in Australia? No, not in one of the major cities but most likely in Central Australia, where female Lutheran hymn singing began 130 years ago. Now a group of women is taking this tradition back to Germany in 2015. Morris Stuart, conductor of the Central Australian Combined Women’s Choir, explains how classical music via German Lutheranism combined with Indigenous traditions to create “a unique musical history”.
