Voices of the Valley was honored and most proud to tour parts of the United Kingdom and South Wales for fourteen days as they performed with such esteemed Welsh Choirs: Cor Dathlu Cwmtawe, Morristown Rugby Welsh Male Choir and Cor Meibion Pontarddulais Male Choir.

They give annual holiday concerts, perform at local nursing homes, they have performed at the annual dinner for the St David’s Society and la festa dei Ceri in Jessup, PA.
