About The King’s Singers
In 1968, the original six King’s Singers came together through their shared love of singing and quickly became world renowned for their mesmerising performances. Celebrating their 50 Year Anniversary in 2018 and touring Australia from February 28 to March 4th, The King’s Singers chart their journey through the music – a breath-taking repertoire that has evolved to become one of the most diverse and compelling imaginable.
With a discography of over 150 recordings The King’s Singers have set the standard for the art of a cappella everywhere. They are the recipients of two Grammy® Awards, an Emmy® Award, the Midem International Classical Award and recent inductees into Gramophone magazines Hall of Fame.
From stunning performances of Medieval and Renaissance music to multiple commissions and new arrangements of pop songs, The King’s Singers have always been lauded for their flexibility and the diversity of their repertoire, which includes a panoply of commissioned works by many of the supreme composers of our times – including Sir John Tavaner, Toru Takemitsu, John Rutter, Luciano Berio, Nico Muhly, György Ligeti and Eric Whitacare.
This love of diversity is reflected in the 50th anniversary release, Gold, a triple-album of new recordings featuring 60 tracks spanning over 500 years, celebrating the amazing musical heritage of The King’s Singers. In a rare visit to Australia, this irresistibly charismatic ensemble performs repertoire from Gold in a serries of stand-alone concerts and with guest appearances by, and collaborations with, some of our countries leading choirs.
An alchemy of ancient and modern, serious and light- hearted, expected and unexpected, the Gold programme features premieres by some of the great contemporary choral composers of our day, alongside masters of the Renaissance and Romantic era’s.
Join one of Britain’s greatest musical exports for a musical trip from the Renaissance to now. Prepare to be charmed.
