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: we're going Hybrid 21st July 2020

The Ignite committee is working together to keep our community singing. We have just finished establishing our parameters for a Hybrid approach to rehearsals. 

There are two types of registration available:

1. Hybrid Ignite - a mix of online and live rehearsals (limited numbers)

2. Virtual Ignite - 100% online rehearsals (unlimited numbers)

Registration is exclusively available via TryBooking Registration subject to our Covid Safe Plan. Read information below before registering. 

CLICK HERE to register. 

After you have read through this information, please click the link ABOVE, choose your preferred membership stream, provide your details and make your fee payment. Your contact details must be confirmed to fulfil our Covid Safe Plan requirements for term 3. Each booking is restricted to one registration. For example, members with two singers in a household will have to book separately for each member. Note that attendance at live rehearsals will be on a rostered basis and is strictly limited. We will advise when live rehearsal bookings are full and remove them from registration. Remember: 100% Virtual attendance is readily available as an option.

Covid Safe Plan - Hybrid membership requirement

Please review our Covid Safe Plan (access via the menu above) as provided to Sherwood State School to secure our venue booking. It is a condition of live rehearsal attendance that members agree to these measures, so please read this carefully and accept these conditions before booking in for Hybrid membership.

Term 3 Fee Structure

During term 2, the Ignite Choir Committee froze membership fees to recognise the hardship our community was facing.

As we return to our venue and adopt new practises under our Covid Safe Plan, we will incur increasing costs that will reduce our financial position. Despite this, we have chosen to reduce our fees (typically $80/term) in recognition of the difficulties still felt in the community. Our fees are as follows:

Hybrid membership $60

Virtual membership $40

Optional donation

If you are in a position to contribute further to help cover our costs, there is a donation box below the ticketing selection area. Additional contributions are completely optional and will remain anonymous, though greatly appreciated.

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions that you have via email to [email protected] We are happy to help clarify this new approach. Don't forget to like our Facebook page and follow us on Instagram for even more updates and information

Ignite Choir in Concert

Ignite Choir in Concert - a celebration of united, harmonious voices

It will not come as a big surprise, but due to the COVID19 outbreak we do not have any concerts currently scheduled.

The Ignite Choir Committee is monitoring the ongoing community health developments with the hope that we will be back performing as soon as it is safe to do so.


New attractions for 2020!

1. NEW VENUE - moving from the Sherwood State School music rooms across to the Old Hall. As we have grown, it will be more comfortable in this new space and we are very excited for the year ahead.

2. NEW ACCOMPANIST - Blake Peterson, who will lend his considerable skills to our rehearsal and performance preparation.
