Music in nineteenth century Sydney.
The article commences with the following reference:
'Daily recitals, twice weekly orchestral concerts and monthly oratorios presented during the Exhibition helped fix and entertainment calendar and ritualise its festivities.'
I plan to include an article on the man responsible for the music over the seven month period at the Garden Palace in Sydney in 1879-1880 His name was Signor Paolo Giorza who composed and conducted the opening cantata with the words written by Australian poet Henry Kendall. Signor Giorza spent eleven years in Australia.
