The Choir has taken part in the National Male Voice Choir Championships in Huddersfield, the International Eisteddfod in Llangollen and international musical festivals in Bulgaria, Italy, Malta, Poland, Greece and Spain. The Choir has also toured the United States five times and Canada twice, performing at such prestigious venues as St Patrick’s Cathedral and Carnegie Hall in New York. The Choir has also been awarded Honorary Citizenship of the State of Georgia and the Freedom of the City of Columbia, South Carolina.
