Ensemble Music

Ignatius Park offers an exciting Music Ensemble program with experienced staff at no extra cost.

Our ensembles are engaging, with a contemporary focus and cater to all students with diverse abilities. Pop, Rock, Country, Classical, Hip Hop, Jazz, Reggae, Funk, Disco are explored and students learn anything from early Blues to the latest hit new releases.

The “Fire-Starters” are our junior band for beginners who have the opportunity to perform with their peers and develop their skills. The “Flame- Riders” are our top musicians who represent our college in the wider community and tour local primary schools.

Ignatius Park have our very own “Deadly’s Band” featuring the musical talents of our Indigenous students. The highlight performance for the year is our Deadly’s Awards Night in October every year, where our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music students entertain family, friends and the wider community.

Another avenue for our musicians is joining our Liturgical Band, where students can participate in performing at liturgies and masses throughout the year.

Lastly, an exciting new initiative at the college is our marching drum corp. Students learn performance skills on bass drum, snare, tom toms and cymbals. A fun project with the aim of performing at events such as Anzac Day Parades and sporting events.

Ensembles rehearse with their musical director at least once a week and are committed to a number of school and public performances each year, including whole school assemblies, open day, feast days, masses and liturgies, showcase evenings, awards nights and of course, our famous Inter-House Battle of the Bands. A highlight in our school calendar is “Iggy Under the Stars” which showcases Arts students including Music, Visual Art, Drama, Film and Television and catered by our Hospitality students.

All students from all year levels and all instruments are welcome and encouraged to join an ensemble.
