Imade Igodan- Choral Director


Ms. Igodan, a native of South Carolina, is the choral director at Galax City Middle and High Schools.  Prior to coming to Galax, Ms. Igodan served in the US Peace Corps in Zambia (2015-17) where she taught English and directed a choir in the village where she lived.  While attending high school, her choral music teacher encouraged her to think about music as a profession.  Ms. Igodan earned a B.S. degree in music from Tennessee State University and a M.M. in vocal performance from the University of South Carolina. While in graduate school she performed in the opera Our Town and played the role of Nora in Riders to the Sea. In 2010 she was chosen for the Manhattan School of Music’s vocal program and studied privately with world-renowned opera singer Mignon Dunn.  Prior to her Peace Corps experience she worked as assistant choral director at Northstar Christian Center in Columbia, SC, and sang with the Lexington County Choral Society in that city.  She was guest artist for a benefit concert raising awareness for multiple sclerosis and, locally, she has been a guest soloist with The Highland Camerata.  She is currently a member of that group. She looks forward to sharing the wonderful world of music with her students.
