Reception, Recognition and Reputation: Australia's Intervarsity Choral Festivals in Mainstream Press Criticism since 1950

Australasian Music Research
Issue 8 (2004)

Abstract: Each year, Australia's university choirs come together to present a largescale choral festival. An examination of the newspaper criticism of festival concerts since they commenced in 1950 suggests that critics hold many preconceived views concerning these festivals, some of which have led to an underestimation of the contribution these festivals have made to the promotion of music and of new composition in Australia over the past half a century.
