The City Choir of Washington and their conductor Robert Shafer are currently touring the UK for the first time. Having performed in Gloucester and Ely Cathedrals, and Keble College, Oxford, the choir will be giving a concert in Temple Church on Wednesday 11 July 2018.  

The choir's programme combines Gabriel Faure's Requiem with four contemporary pieces, Eric Whitacre's The Chelsea Carol, John Tavener's The Lamb and Tolstoy's Creed, and I will lift up mine eyes by the choir's conductor, Robert Shafer. John Tavener's Tolstoy's Creed was commissioned by The City Choir of Washington in 2012.

Robert Shafer celebrates 50 years as a choral conductor this year, and he has been artistic director of The City Choir of Washington since its inception in 2007.
