Nicole Muir AM


Nicole is a visionary leader, excellent communicator and mentor by nature. With a varied background in arts management and education alongside her passion for feminism, Nicole has built a career empowering others, particularly women and girls, through the performing arts. Nicole combines collaboration with intuition when making key business decisions, and encourages this approach in every facet of the business. Nicole’s love of learning and ability to think beyond the everyday to a reimagined reality has seen the organisation grow from strength to strength, including the launch of ISPA in Singapore. She loves the challenges associated with leading this vibrant organisation and is particularly proud of the passion, talent and dedication that is consistently displayed by the staff team.

With a deep care for First Nations peoples, Nicole was also instrumental in the development and growth of ASPA’s charity partner, Girls from Oz, and currently sits as Chair of the organisation. In 2018, Nicole was awarded an Order of Australia for her service to the performing arts, specifically for young women and girls and those living in remote regions.

Vicki King

Artistic Director

Musical to the core, Vicki is an inspiration to Tutors and choristers across the country and internationally. Vicki’s extensive musical training and understanding of a wide range of musical styles has led to her masterful ability to bring choral music to life in a theatrical, accessible and entertaining way. Vicki is passionate about the growth of the choristers both musically and personally, and is excited about growing choristers in Singapore as part of the AIGC. In particular, Vicki looks forward to creating a unique repertoire selection for AIGC’s first year and seeing these choices come to life at AIGC’s first concert.

While being an expert in her field, Vicki remains humble and inclusive in her work, and is outward focussed to fresh ideas. An empathetic and encouraging leader, Vicki also has exacting standards and consistently strives to improve the artistic standard achieved across the organisation.

Outside of ISPA, Vicki was a founding member of the internationally awarded acappella ensemble Akasa and believes that the expressive power of the performing arts can be used as a tool for social change, empowerment and the building of community.

Having spent seven years as a chorister in the Australian Girls Choir, 16 years at dance classes, and five years working for the Australian School of Performing Arts as a Venue Manager, Tutor, and Holiday Camp Instructor, Alice has developed a rich love of music and the performing arts. From her own experience in the choir, Alice has seen that music provides a safe place for young people to express themselves, push boundaries and think outside of the box. Alice believes that music brings people together, and is excited to meet new choristers in the AIGC and start cultivating a community of like-minded people in Singapore. Alice has also worked extensively with ISPA charity partner, Girls from Oz, to deliver music and dance workshops to children in remote Aboriginal communities.
