Artists-in-Residence

Saint Ignatius High School boasts three artist-in-residence programs at The Breen Center for the Performing Arts.  These groups consider The Breen Center their home stage, allowing them to share their creative expertise with our students, the neighboring community as well as their own loyal audiences.

The Singers’ Club
An auditioned male chorus formed in 1892 and dedicated to the performance of fine choral music and to the friendships that develop. The club presents three concerts each season at The Breen Center and features dynamic young soloists, unique guest groups like the Saint Ignatius Cat-O-Tonics, and internationally known guest artists. Learn more about the Singers' Club at www.singersclub.org.
 
BlueWater Chamber Orchestra
A group of local, professional, world-class musicians committed to bringing a transformative musical experience directly into the neighborhoods of Northeast Ohio. In its season concerts at The Breen Center and other Northeast Ohio venues, BlueWater shares the luminous world of inspiring music in an inviting and accessible manner.
 
As part of its residency, BlueWater initiated the new string ensemble at Saint Ignatius High School. Future plans include incorporating BlueWater musicians in the classrooms at Saint Ignatius, in programs uniting the arts and academics.
