Premier and Chamber Choirs travel every summer during June and/or July, and follow the tradition of international tours every other year. Most tours to date have been organized through the services of ACFEA Tour Consultants. Tours typically last from 6–12 days, include multiple and varied performances and fun-filled daily touring and sight-seeing of significant historical and cultural landmarks as well as region-specific educational experiences (musical and otherwise). We have had the pleasure of performing most recently in the Stirling Bridge International Arts Festival in Scotland (July 2018), and in previous years at Carnegie Hall, the Golden Gate International Children’s Choral Festival, the Pacific International Children’s Choir Festival, as well as throughout Europe.
Apprentice Choir tours locally, and Intermediate Choir tours both locally and regionally in Southern California in preparation for longer tours when the choristers advance to Premier Choir.

"We woke up early at Turtle Bay
with all our jet-lag, that's not ok.
We had a quick breakfast at BYU,
not to mention lunch and dinner too.
Then we walked to the PCC.
A canoe took us over to Tahiti
Also over to Aoteraroa
and Hawaii and also Samoa.
In Tahiti we learned to shake our hips
and in Hawaii we learned our hula dips.
In New Zealand we twirled poi balls
and learned the sasa and Samoan calls.
In conclusion, we had a fun time.
Boy this was hard to rhyme."
- Rhianna and Aspen, choristers from 2009 Pacific Rim Festival/Hawaii tour
