Mr. Cleobury talks about his choir, the regular commissioning of new music, an upcoming major renovation of the Chapel’s Harrison & Harrison pipe organ (which, unless otherwise indicated, is today’s featured instrument), and ‘connecting to his roots’ by keeping in shape as a soloist.

The Choir of King’s College tours in the United States between March 20-26, 2015, with appearances in New York City, Washington-DC, Saint Paul, Chicago and Dallas.
