The King's Singers

Saturday, February 1, 2014

Arguably the single most prolific ensemble working today in the United States, The King’s Singers raise the standard for vocal excellence. Whether its Bach or Bublé, The King’s Singers perform with a warm vocal blend and sophisticated intonation that separates them from the pack. A champion of young composers everywhere, the successful ensemble spread their love of singing, and their British wit, wherever they go.
With a packed schedule of album recordings, live concerts, media, and educational work, it’s a miracle The King’s Singers have time for anything else. In 2009, The King’s Singers won a Grammy for their studio album Simple Gifts on Signum. Their 2012 international tour featured performances at the Sydney Opera House, Carnegie Hall, and Berlin Philharmonie and appearances in dozens of countries across the world, including Australia, France, Finland, and the UAE. Aside from their touring schedule, the world class ensemble has appeared in a number of television programs, performing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir for the Winter Olympics and at the 2008 BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall.
More than anything, The King’s Singers hope to inspire young aspiring singers and composers to continue their interest and develop their talents. By holding workshops and masterclasses every year, the ensemble aspires to at least provide some assistance and inspiration for underprivileged and dedicated youth musicians. As well, The King’s Singers publish an astonishing amount of sheet music, having over 2 million items in circulation. These compositions are often performed by school and college choirs, as well as professional and amateur ensembles.
