The music ministry of St. Ignatius Church uses the talents of the parish's volunteer singers and instrumentalists to give glory to God through leading the assembly in song during the liturgies and through other special events. At the heart of the St. Ignatius music ministry are two choirs that serve the parish. All of the singers in these choirs are volunteers who give most generously of their time and talent. New members are always welcome in the choirs and in fact very much enrich the experience for all of the choir members.
The Parish Choir is an SATB (soprano-alto-tenor-bass) chorus for teens and adults that rehearses weekly on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9:00 p.m. and from 9:15-9:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings and sings for the 10 a.m. mass each Sunday. The parish choir sings a wide range of repertoire including hymnody, chant, Renaissance polyphony, choral anthems, and contemporary music. For the Sunday liturgies, the parish choir sings from either the music area at the front of the church or the choir loft. When in front, the choir is accompanied by the piano and when in the choir loft, the choir is accompanied by the organ.
The Coro Hispano is a teen and adult choir which currently rehearses on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings at 11:30 a.m. and sings in Spanish for the 12 p.m. mass each Sunday. This choir sings beautiful Hispanic liturgical songs.
While the parish does not currently have a children's choir, we would like to establish one. At this time, children and youth are welcome to sing with the parish choir. Please contact our director of music if you would like your child to participate in choir. If you would like to become a member of one of the St. Ignatius choirs, please call (773) 764-5936 ext. 17 or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
