California Mission Tour?

Hi Folks,
 
I am working on future plans for my chamber choir to present at our August 11 retreat.  One thought is a tour in the summer of 2014.  I have a few ideas including a concert tour of California Missions (performing motets of the time, probably).  I have looked on the California Missions website--isn't that wild to say?--and I don't see anything about concerts.
 
I have not looked into tour companies as yet--perhaps someone here will be able to point me in the right direction as to companies who would be able to do something like this.
 
I don't need to know everything, just something to present to my singers in a couple weeks.
 
Thank you for any help you may be able to give me.

There is no overriding organizational entity for the California missions. You'll need to contact each one individually. There are 21 "main" missions, so you'll probably want to narrow it down, and not all are suitable for concerts. Soledad, for example, has a very tiny basilica. 
 
Good luck! They can be fun to sing in.

I believe Peter's Way Tours, which does choir tours, has a California Mission Option.
