The Cathedral Choir has toured extensively all over the U.S. and in Northern Ireland. In addition to annual tours, the choir is featured in the annual Candlelight Service at JBU each December.

In 2014, the Cathedral Choir recorded a CD while on a mission tour in Northern Ireland. The CD will be on sale at the choir’s appearance, along with a three-CD set of the “Best of the Cathedral Choir 1992-2016.”

All concerts are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Becky Pohle at bpohle@jbu.edu
