Robert Shafer, Artistic Director of The City Choir of Washington, performs Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 at Strathmore Thursday evening, April 17, 2008 at 8 p.m. Nearly 250 musicians -- including four choirs (The City Choir of Washington will be joined by the Shenandoah Conservatory Choir, the Children's Chorus of Washington, and the Blue Ridge Choristers) plus soloists and a Baroque orchestra -- will take the stage in this monumental high Renaissance masterpiece. Classical WETA's Nicole Lacroix spoke with Bob Shafer about the City Choir of Washington' inaugural season and his very personal relationship with this music.
