Be A Resident Choir at a British Cathedral


We believe that taking your ensemble on an international performance tour is a transformative experience. Time and time again, we have seen that choirs that travel together not only grow musically, but also build ensemble unity. For church choirs in particular, there are undeniable spiritual, community-building, and mission-driven reasons to travel with your ensemble. That’s why we’re excited to announce two brand new opportunities for your ensemble to become a resident choir in a stunning British cathedral.

Take your church choir to new places by securing a residency at one of two iconic locations: Exeter Cathedral and Norwich Cathedral. These historic cathedrals, which both date back nearly 1,000 years, make for an unforgettable setting for your next performance tour.

Creating a tradition of traveling with your ensemble can help with recruitment and retention, as well as create a performance goal beyond your usual services and performances. With these residencies, your choir will also have the opportunity for personal exploration, cultural exchange, and developing a greater understanding of the world. Some highlights of these residencies include:

  • Spending a summer’s week in England singing in a British cathedral
  • Performing daily Evensong as the resident cathedral choir
  • Taking a masterclass with the resident choir master
  • Staying in comfortable local accommodations
  • Exploring the local area with our world-class Tour Managers
  • And so much more!

As always, we offer several customization options, including the opportunity to extend the trip and explore on your own. We also realize that travel is going to look a bit different in the coming years, so we have developed several new policies to provide your choir with peace of mind before you embark on a life-changing performance tour. That includes the ability to book now with no risk until October, additional scholarships to make travel more accessible, and safety enhancements to make sure you’re secure while overseas.

We’re all excited for the imminent return of travel, and there’s never been a better time to start planning. Please browse through our new policies and initiatives, or schedule a call with one of our tour consultants to learn more.
