Warren Fisher


Warren started his working life in the classroom and as a conductor of bands and choirs. Warren’s equal love of performance took him away from the classroom for nearly a decade. On the stage he sang everything from Irish popular music with the Three Irish Tenors,  and a singing snake in “Sid the Serpent Who Wanted to Sing” (OZ Opera Schools Tour) to God/Dwight in “Jerry Springer: The Opera” for the Sydney Opera House Trust. Warren has more than 36 operas to his credit with the Opera Australia Chorus, as well as a couple of dozen roles and covers.

With great joy he returned to the world of education where he took over the reins of the choir program at Knox Grammar School. Warren is now Director of Choirs and Tech Crew Co-ordinator at Knox. He strongly believes that everyone should sing. Not because it helps brain development, concentration skills, or literary and numeracy skills, but because everyone can do it. “When we sing, we access areas of our being that may otherwise be left dormant; and it just feels so good,” he says.
