Founded in 1968, The King’s Singers, “arguably the most successful vocal ensemble on the planet” (Gramophone), celebrate their Golden Jubilee in 2018 in a welcome return to Spivey Hall. Their worldwide reputation for excellence arises from “six voices perfectly matched, and a focus on the finest precision of performance” (BroadwayWorld.com).
“The audience loved it, and justifiably, for ultimately The King’s Singers are out-andout entertainers, delighting in showing what can be done with the most varied and delightful of material” (Edmonton Journal).
“The superlative vocal sextet” (The Times)

We want to take you on a new musical adventure to celebrate The King's Singers' 50th birthday. It's an adventure that gives thanks for all the music that's defined our first fifty years, inspired by the unique maverick spirit that guided the original six King's Singers to keep every performance as fresh and varied as possible. We still share their mission today: the future of music deserves to shine as brightly as it can. This is about savouring the amazing diversity of music and musicians in our world today, holding up composers, songwriters and singers of all kinds side by side to create something truly special.
Come and join us for the ride. THIS IS GOLD.
