As our top-level professional group, the Tour Choir emphasizes extensive choral techniques. Music involves varied tempos, styles and harmonic complexities. Original compositions are commissioned and performed. Performances include weddings, symphony collaborations, commercials, and high profile appearances. Each year the Tour Choir embarks on an extensive summer concert tour. The concert tours are developed around performance schedules and incorporate a closer look at American or foreign history. They have also released numerous CD recordings.
