The University Choir performs for audiences throughout the Pacific Northwest. The Choir performs in Spokane on campus in the beautiful St. Aloysius Church and downtown at the Fox Theater. It also performs frequent regional tours, including the Seattle and Portland area. The fall 2010 Seattle tour included performances at the downtown Daniels Recital Hall and St. James Cathedral.
