In addition to the University Singers’ extensive performance of new works, they regularly perform traditional choral repertoire and masterworks. Recent concerts have included Handel’s Messiah, Weihnachtsoratorium by Bach, Mozart’s Requiem, Stravinsky’s Symphony of Psalms, and Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana. The University Singers have placed first in the CBC Radio National Amateur Choir Competitions (Chamber Choir Category). They have toured extensively throughout the Americas and they have taken numerous concert tours to Europe, including Germany, Holland, Austria, Poland, Finland, Switzerland, Italy, Ireland and England. In 2011 they toured Sweden and Finland, and represented Canada at the Vaasa International Choral Festival.
