Classical Movements presents  The City Choir of Washington on their debut tour of England in July 2018. Under the direction of its GRAMMY award-winning conductor Robert Shafer, in only 10 years TCCW has built a reputation as one of the capital’s premiere choirs, with the Washington Post heralding them “a first-class chorus.”
