Impact on Brisbane Society

When the University of Queensland began in 1911 with 83 students and four professors a ‘Glee Club’ was proposed. The first public appearance of the Musical Society, conjointly with the Dramatic Society, was at the end of second term in 1912. With the formation of the University Union in 1912, all social clubs, including the Musical Society, were under the control of the Union. In its 1934 constitution, it called itself the University of Queensland Union Musical Society. From 1952 it formally became known as the University of Queensland Musical Society.
