The 360-voice choir and 65-member orchestra says the tour will include stops in Columbus, Ohio, Indianapolis, Ind., Chicago, Milwaukee and Madison, Wisc., and Minneapolis, Minn. Tour dates run from June 12 through June 20.

It's the first time the group has visited the upper Midwest since 2009.

Officials say the choir's repertoire will span from Bach and Broadway to American folk hymns and spirituals.

Tickets are now on sale through the group's website,
