International tours have taken the Chorale to concert venues and church-related events in Germany, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, and Russia. In May 2015, the Chorale will again tour in Scandinavia and the Baltic.

The 2014 tour concerts will feature a broad range of musical compositions including selections by Maurice Greene, Palestrina, Tallis, Gjeilo, Barrie Cabena, Mendelssohn, Donald Skirvin, and others. Additionally, hymn arrangements and spirituals and gospel selections will be performed.
