Saint Ignatius High School

Chorus

The Saint Ignatius High School Choral Program is recognized as one of the premiere choral programs in the state of Ohio. Students of all abilities and experience levels are welcome to participate in one or more of our offerings.



In addition to offering choral and music instruction during the school day, Saint Ignatius offers several opportunities for students with an interest in singing. These range from chorus groups open to all students, to audition-only performance troupes. Please see below for all available choral opportunities.

To learn more about how to get involved with the choral program at Saint Ignatius, please contact Mr. David Croglio, Director of Choral and Liturgical Music.
