The Lycoming College Tour Choir is a college choir that performs regularly in the United States. The choir is based at Lycoming College, which is a four-year private college in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, USA.
The Tour Choir is a ensemble of about 40 students who are selected by audition each November. The Tour Choir begins rehearsals in January, and its annual tour schedule includes two weekend tours and a 10-day concert tour over spring break. Every three or four years, the Tour Choir conducts a two-week tour abroad in addition to its yearly activities.
The Tour Choir also performs a "Homecoming Concert" at Lycoming College after its spring break tour, as well as appearing in the Graduation Concert.
Like the other Lycoming choirs, members of the Tour Choir are students from every academic field and major. Members are chosen for their abilities to be cooperative and dedicated as much as for their musical talents.
Since the Lycoming Choir's inception in 1947, the choir has toured in many parts of the United States during its annual "spring break" tour. In the past fifteen years, the Tour Choir has visited New England, Chicago and the Midwest, Florida, Georgia, Texas, Louisiana, and North and South Carolina, and has flown to California four times.
In addition, the Tour Choir has traveled abroad often: once to Puerto Rico; once to Argentina; twice to England; twice to Spain; and five times to central Europe, including Germany, Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic.
The Spring 2013 10-day tour includes performances in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, followed by a concert series in Puerto Rico in early March.
