Community Choirs in Australia: Australian Music
Almost all Australian community choirs sing Australian music (Figure 2). Our question was about the place of Australian music in the choir’s repertoire, based not on a proportion of repertoire but the effort or priority placed on Australian music. Almost none (0.5%) indicated that “it’s all we sing”, but a third (34%) indicate that they “make a conscious effort”. A much larger group sings some but doesn’t make a conscious effort (58%), bringing the total number of choirs that do sing Australian music to 93%.
