ENGLAND TOUR 2021

Every summer the Choir takes a tour to sing concerts and services in major cathedrals, concert halls, and cultural sites. In July 2021 we had been invited as a guest ensemble to sing in Berlin, Leipzig, and Stralsund, but international travel proved impossible. We instead refocused our energies into a 10-day tour of singing services, concerts, and charity events throughout England. We are thrilled to announce our 2021 Tour, and would be delighted to see you at any of the exciting events below:
