Past Tours

Newfoundland & United Kingdom Tour (2018)

Was a whirlwind tour with a total of 7 performances during the 15 day trip. Starting in Newfoundland, the Canadian leg of the tour was filled with connecting to the choral community! EYC performed at PODIUM 2018, at the Gros Morne Music Festival, and performed a concert with the Nova Scotia Girl’s Choir. From there, choristers flew to the UK where they explored London, York, and Edinburgh. Throughout the UK leg of the tour, choristers were able to truly experience what the cities had to offer through many local tours, performing in stunning cathedrals, and using leisure time to explore different areas independently.

South Africa Tour (2016)

Was an exhilarating 13 day tour that explored 4 beautiful cities: Johannasberg, Pilanesberg, George, and Cape Town. Choristers spent the trip learning about the incredible culture by touring cities, taking in local food, and experiencing cultural epicentres like the Apartheid Museum. Highlights of the trip included performing with the University of Johannesburg, visiting an ostrich farm and going on a safari!
