Touring History

Since the first tour outside of Utah in 1893, the Choir has toured extensively across the United States and abroad. It has performed throughout Europe and in music capitals from Israel and Russia to Japan and Australia. Its travels have also included performances at the inaugurations of seven U. S. Presidents. After the Orchestra at Temple Square was founded in 1999, a small ensemble of some of its members accompanied the Choir on tours in 2001 and 2003; however, since 2005, a full complement of approximately 65 members of the Orchestra has traveled on tour with the Choir.

The all-volunteer Choir and Orchestra usually tour every other year, since all of the performers must take vacation time from their jobs and leave their families to undertake the travel. Their most recent tours included visits to seven European countries in 2016 and the Classic Coast Tour in 2018 to California, Washington, and British Columbia, Canada.
