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."

Their tour program combines American, English and French choral works spanning the 19th century to today. A highlight of this tour will be the Choir’s own 2012 commission, Sir John Tavener's Tolstoy's Creed, alongside the Fauré Requiem and works by Robert Shafer and Eric Whitacre.
