The Choir of St. Ignatius Loyola is comprised of New York’s finest professional choral singers led by acclaimed Music Director Kent Tritle. The Choir’s “tremendous expressive and dynamic range” and “remarkable vocal discipline and finesse” (New York Times) is featured in the Sacred Music in a Sacred Space concert series, now entering its 20th season. Each member is a soloist in his or her own right in a variety of genres including early music, opera, oratorio, and contemporary repertoire. The core group of 19 members sings a demanding schedule of weekly parish worship services in a wide range of repertoire, with particular emphasis on new works, the sacred Renaissance repertoire, and Gregorian chant. The Choir may be heard on recordings for the MSR Classics and AMDG labels. In March 2006 the Choir was invited as the headline chorus at the Southwestern American Choral Directors Association convention in St. Louis, Missouri.
The Orchestra of St. Ignatius Loyola participates in the Sacred Music in a Sacred Space concert series and enhances a number of parish worship services throughout the year. Members are drawn from among New York City’s most talented and stylistically versatile freelance musicians, and are often heard in the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the orchestras of the New York City Opera and New York City Ballet, and various period-instrument orchestras.
