A way to connect with God

"We don’t just sing songs because they sound nice, but because they resonate with something deeper within us all.”

A way to connect and worship

I have seen God in the music we have sung

“I have seen God in and through the music we have sung, His spirit of joy and truth and healing flowing from our voices to the hearts of those who came to hear us. I saw Him in the churches and cathedrals we sang in—the high and wide spaces echoing back our voices, reminding us of how BIG God is.”

2018 European Tour

Every other year, the Dock Touring Choir travels to Europe for a two-week tour. Students live with host families and perform a variety of concerts, many in churches, but also in public and impromptu, "pop-up" spaces. The tour offers choir members the opportunity to learn about travel, experience other cultures, and bond with one another. Students count it as one of the highlights of their high school experience.
