Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hugo Alpen (26 October 1842, Kellinghusen, Germany - 20 June 1917, Strathfield, New South Wales) came to Australia at the age of 16 in 1858, and established a career as a composer, choral conductor and singing teacher. After spending several years in Melbourne, Alpen was appointed director of the Vocal Philharmonic Society in the New South Wales town of Tumut in 1862, and from 1865 was based in Albury. He moved to Sydney in 1880 to work as a singing master for the newly established Department of Public Instruction (now the Department of Education), teaching at Fort Street and Hurlstone teacher training colleges.show more
