Since the times of intensive development of the movement of cultural-artistic amateurism in Croatia, in the late 19th century, choral cultural-artistic amateurism has been considered extremely important because of its considerable implications beyond just music by way of influencing the shaping of the cultural climate of the area. The purpose of this paper was to establish whether there is an influence of choral cultural-artistic amateurism on the development of cultural life in the towns of Slavonia. The paper puts the historical activities and the contribution of amateur singing societies formed in the late 19th and the beginning of the 20th century from the Eastern Croatian regions in relationship with their contemporary contribution to creating the cultural life of towns in which they act.
