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 its founding in 1999, a small ensemble from the Orchestra at Temple Square accompanied the Choir on tours in 2001 and 2003; however, since 2005, a full complement of the Orchestra has traveled on tour with the Choir.
