Melbourne’s Federation Square is 10 years old! (Where did that decade go?) The history behind Fed Square goes back to Melbourne’s foundation in the 1830s – the land has played host to a variety of buildings and activities including the Coroner’s Office, Registry Office, a fish market, rail yards and believe it or not – a Morgue. Something less tasteful, but no less attractive, was the old Gas and Fuel buildings that stood on the site for the latter part of the 20th century before being demolished and redeveloped as the city’s new civic square.
The Choir was there in October 2002 when the Square was officially opened.

Declan Edwards, who joined the Choir in 2010 and also turned 10 in 2012 was invited to help Fed Square celebrate their anniversary – Declan joined Men in Suits to sing Happy Birthday before lending a hand to cut the cake.
