Ignit​e Choir

Founded in 2005, ignite choir was created to fulfill the needs of Ignatians Musical Society members who were unable to be involved in full scale performances. The choir is an un-auditioned, so anyone is welcome to join and no previous experience is necessary - although a significant number of the choir members have been involved in Ignatians musicals in the past. We cover a wide range of styles – from classical to Gilbert & Sullivan, Broadway to pop – which means there’s sure to be some repertoire to suit your interests.​

COVid 19 update: Let's keep singing with Ignite Virtual

The Ignite committee is working together to keep our community singing. We have now resumed rehearsals via Zoom and our Artistic Director Harmony has designed a great plan to get us through our isolation period. Initially continuing with our Classics  Repertoire, we are also incorporating master classes with choral professionals and hosting Remote Open Mic Nights.

The next phase will work toward our Ignite Smash Hits Concert resurrecting some of our favourites from past events and voting on which "Hits" should be included in our final line up.

Fees on hold

As many people are facing economic hardship at this time, we have paused our $80 term fees and anyone currently registered with us (via their initial music library fee) will be able to join immediately. For those who are new to Ignite Choir, we will only ask that you register with your $20 music library fee. Either way, we ask that you contact us by email so we can welcome you into our community.

How to get involved

1.  Get in touch by email ([email protected]) and let us know if you would like to get involved.

2. You will then register via trybooking and receive zoom instructions and music files.

3. You will be added to our active member list for subsequent community support and rehearsal information.

4. Like our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram for even more updates and information

It will not come as a big surprise, but due to the COVID19 outbreak we will be postponing our Choral Classics Concert that was to be held on 28 March. The rehearsal for 24th March and the Saturday Workshop for the 21st March have now both cancelled.

For anyone who booked and paid for the Choral Classics Concert via Trybooking, your payment will be refunded.
