The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge is one of the world’s best known choral groups. Every Christmas Eve millions of people worldwide tune in to listen to their A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, which is the longest established annual broadcast in history, reaching 90 years in 2018. The choir’s international fame and reputation, enhanced by an extensive recording catalog, has led to invitations to perform around the world.

This will be the last chance in D.C. to experience the choir under Director Stephen Cleobury, who retires at the end of this academic year.
