What really distinguished the group in its early years was its musical diversity. The King’s Singers were a weekly fixture on prime-time television, celebrating popular music never usually touched by choral ensembles, and their unique British charm, combined with their musical craft, captured audiences’ hearts the world over. The group has consistently been welcomed on the world’s great stages throughout its history—from London’s Royal Albert Hall to the Opera House in Sydney or New York’s Carnegie Hall—as well as being ambassadors for musical excellence at numerous significant global events. Two Grammy® Awards, an Emmy® Award, and a place in Gramophone magazine’s inaugural Hall of Fame sit among the numerous accolades bestowed upon the group.
This love of diversity has always fuelled The King’s Singers’ commitment to creating new music. A panoply of commissioned works by many of the supreme composers of our times—including Sir John Tavener, György Ligeti, Toru Takemitsu, John Rutter, Luciano Berio, Nico Muhly and Eric Whitacre—sits alongside countless bespoke arrangements in the group’s extensive repertoire. The group is determined to spread the joy of ensemble singing, and leads workshops and residential courses all over the world each season.
The world may have changed a lot in the fifty years since the original King’s Singers came together, but today’s group is still charged by the same lifeblood—one that wants to radiate the joy singing brings every day, and to give life to audiences with their virtuosity and vision for an exciting musical future.
